Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream now sits shoulder to shoulder with some of the best gourmet ice cream out there.  But that wasn’t always the story.  In 1978, you’d have to go to a little gas station in Vermont to have a scoop of Ben and Jerry’s.  Shortly before selling the ice cream to the public, Ben and Jerry spent $5 on a mail-order course to learn how to make ice cream.  Hardly the stuff of a gourmet!  But they were committed to it, and within a few short years, that little gas station didn’t sell a drop of gas.  It was 100% ice cream and the demand was legendary.  One shop became two… and th

Who put the “mmmmm” in hummus?  A great company called Lantana.  It’s a company of 3 friends:  Bob, Gil and John.  So many of us talk about following our passions, and these 3 guys did it.  Hummus, at its most basic, is a pretty simple creation.  Hummus is an Arabic word that basically translates to “chickpeas.”  The absolutely formal name for the spread we all love is actually “ḥummuṣ bi ṭaḥīna.”  You guessed it:  Chickpeas with tahini.  But that’s taking us back much further than the story of our 3 friends.  They loved hummus and were constantly experimenting with new flavor comb
