A single batch of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream produced at their Waterbury, VT plant contains 80,000 pints of ice cream. Of course, 80,000 pints is relatively small for an ice cream producing powerhouse who manufacturers up to one million pints per day.

But not every flavor will reach Ice SCREAM celebrity status like Cherry Garcia, Chubby Hubby, or Half Baked. Even new flavors (of which Ben & Jerry’s produces about three or four every year) need a minimum of 80,000 satisfied or, at least, curious customers willing to purchase it before it reaches the production floor.
