I have many million dollar ideas and zero million dollar benefactors.


TIL an anonymous ice cream fan invented Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream and Ben and Jerry made a fortune off someone else’s idea.


God bless their soul, whoever they are


It’s funny that they ‘invented’ it because their version is my least favorite of any I’ve tried. I’ve yet to have one where the cookie dough didn’t taste either dry or bland, or in one case borderline stale.


I wonder what they replace the raw egg with.
