Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream truck stopped at The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce Wednesday to dispense free samples of Cherry Garcia Ice Cream. Ben & Jerry’s officials said¬†Cherry Garcia is their best-selling flavor and that a stop in The Dalles is like a homecoming, since the grower-owned cooperative Oregon Cherry Growers have been supplying the cherries for Ben & Jerry’s for nearly a decade. Oregon Cherry Growers President and CEO Tim Ramsey was on hand for the event and was kind enough to consent to a short interview for our Business Beat program sponsored by The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce and the Goldendale Chamber o
f Commerce. Listen by clicking on the grey podcast bar below.
