The Vermomster is a Ben & Jerry's giant 40 dollar hot fudge sundae that consists of twenty scoops of ice cream (which is roughly four and a half pounds), three cookies, four bananas, one brownie, four ladles of hot fudge, ten scoops of peanuts, three scoops of sprinkles, three scoops of M&Ms, and a whole lot of whip cream. In total, it weighs six to seven pounds.
If you want one from the Ben & Jerry's in Davis it is best to call ahead.
There is also an annual Vermonster Challenge where teams race to eat a Vermonster for charity.
What is your opinion on the Vermonster. Have you had one? Answer with a Comment:
2004-12-18 19:35:58 I have worked at Ben & Jerry's for over five years and have seen many people try to eat the Vermnoster on their own and they fail every time. When I was working in Berkeley I saw the School band forse 4 blindfolded Freshmen to eat one. They finished in 15 minutes. But I think a couple of them threw up. - RobRoy
2005-01-03 06:07:36 My least favorite thing about the Vermonster is what a melted amalgam of sorrow it is by the time one has reached the bottom layers. It's just not a pleasant visual. —TravisGrathwell
- That's why you're supposed to eat it in a walk-in freezer. —ct
2005-01-22 13:05:11 The Jewish Student Union had a Vermonster Challenge - about 10 students eating one Vermonster. All I can say is that it was probably the most unhygenic experience I've ever had. —LizaInfeld
2005-04-23 19:24:07 I didn't know they were Kosher. —SirPallas
2006-03-26 00:15:34 Just remember, Ben Cohen (of Ben & Jerry's) had a quintuple bypass, and Bert Baskin (Baskin-Robbins) died of a heart attack in 1969. —SteveDavison
2006-03-26 00:36:17 You're right Steve. The funny thing is when I was hanging out with ben and Jerry thi spast January Ben is now the thin one and Jerry is the heavier one. Also, Ben - who has a beard in all the cartoons of the pair - now is clean shaven and Jerry has the beard. I guess Ben got a little to close to death and now he wised up. But when you are the official ice cream taster for Ben & Jerry's for 20 years it is bound to catch up with you. —RobRoy
2006-10-17 13:04:01 I ate a vermonster with some freinds in about 10th grade. Puberty can really make one ravenous! —MatthiasGropp
2007-11-05 08:33:02 if you've never participated in the conquering of a vermonster you are missing something. —WillJobe
