For any of those who eat/buy Ben and Jerry's ice cream, or those who are considering doing so in the future. Do not buy the flavour "Cherry Garcia" with the expiration dates 10/31/06 or 11/01/06. After many written complaints about the ice cream being vanilla, there being no cherries, only chocolate, they've decided to confess, via either human error or machine problems that there was uneven distribution (sometimes resulting in NONE whatsoever) in those batches. What I find peculiar is that they recommended my mother and I not buy these expiration date batches and WAIT for it to cycle out of the stores. They are aware of the problem but they're not recalling those specific batches (although they stress that they strive for quality). I think it's bad service that they're playing on the chances that most people will buy it, eat it, and probably not complain about it (and probably just buy another flavour from then on). I thought I should inform all who might be interested.
