'High on a Vermont hill there's a Graveyard that's haunted, by the ghosts of old flavors that nobody wanted,' or so it’s told on the lawn overlooking the Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory.
After nearly 35 years of making ice cream some flavors are bound to expire.
But fortunately for ice cream lovers, this imaginative graveyard featuring clever epitaph-faced headstones in Waterbury, Vermont allows guests to remember those flavors gone, but not forgotten.
Nestled behind a lavender-painted arch and white picket fence, guests come face-to-face with the individual memorials whose tombstones' witty poems beg for a moment of attention.
As read for the discontinued flavor Fresh Georgia Peach which graced store aisles from 1986 to 1991, its demise is creatively explained:
‘Fresh-picked peaches, trucked from Georgia, tasted great but couldn't last, 'cuz Georgia's quite-a-ways away, & trucks don't go that fast.'
