BURLINGTON, Vt., March 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- There's just something about a s'more. Maybe it's smooshing the graham crackers around the toasted marshmallow or wiping melting #chocolate off your face after taking a big bite. To harness the deliciousness of this campfire favorite, Ben & Jerry's created #gimmesmore, an ice cream take on a classic dessert experience. Join Ben & Jerry's via FACEBOOK LIVE for a flame-worthy digital launch unlike any other. Tune in by visiting Ben & Jerry's Facebook page on 3/15.
