I recently came across a new flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, Clusterfluff, which was an absolute delight. But after consuming the peanut butter and marshmallow filled dessert I wondered about the product itself. Shockingly the ice cream company had this thought as well, they too seemed concerned with the afterlife of each pint they created. The excess ice cream products are not acceptable in wastewater treatment plants, instead are sent to a methane bio-digester left for farmers and the remaining is used in composting.
