The Inside Scoop of Ben & Jerry's

Showcasing a sweet side to data analysis, this project profiles Ben & Jerry's nearly 100 ice cream flavors. Lindsey Poulter and Hesham Eissa, both of whom have received accolades in the data visualization community and are self-proclaimed "frequent ice cream consumers," created The Inside Scoop this past summer. Because they reside in different countries (Poulter lives in New York, NY, and Eissa resides in London, UK), the pair wanted to see how geography impacted flavor options. The project also analyzed flavor profiles, popularity, and availability, culminating with "The Complete Ben & Jerry's Flavor Guide." This interactive guide allows users to search by flavor, addition, or country to see what combinations are the most celebrated. One universal finding stands out: "We all scream for ice cream!" Data for the project were collected from the Ben & Jerry's website on July 19, 2020 and was limited to flavors available in pint size.
