If you’re the sort who eats ice cream, thinks ice cream, dreams ice cream, congratulations, your dreams have come true.

Your fairy godmother? Ben & Jerry’s.

Come Dec 6, the well-loved ice cream brand will be holding its very first Chunk Fest.

Named as such “in honour of the delicious chunky add-ins found in every single Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream”, Chunk Fest promises to deliver a “moovellous concotion of great activities, moosic from the best local bands and DJs, great food, and euphoric amounts of ice cream”.

Well, they said it, so you better believe it.

To better entice you, Ben & Jerry’s bringing in 12 exclusive ice cream flavours available only in the United States, in addition to 22 flavours currently offered in local scoop shops. Pumpkin Cheesecake, Cinnamon Buns, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, Triple Caramel Chunk; if the names don’t leave you salivating already, tasting them certainly will.

And if you still haven’t gotten your fill of ice cream, take part in the Vermonster Eating Contest and stuff yourself silly. 20 scoops of ice cream topped with 20 scoops of toppings that include savoury hot fudge, chocolate chip cookies, walnuts, chocolate jimmies, chunks of Reese’s and colourful M&Ms topped with whipped cream. That’s right, the contest’s going to put a whole new meaning to “ice cream feast”.

Still not convinced? Why not head down for yourself to experience all that icy-cool goodness?

Then, with your tummy full of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, log onto the UrbanWire, as we bring you the chowing action from the Vermonster Eating Contest.

That’s right, not only can you have your ice cream, you can eat it, and watch others eating it too!


The Ben & Jerry’s Chunk Fest will be taking place at Fort Canning Green from 2pm to 11pm.

Admission is free for all.
