Hi everyone!

Today, we’re going to be talking about the expression hit the spot and about Ben and Jerry’s, which is an ice cream company that started in the state of Vermont and has become one of the top selling ice cream brands in the world today. Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, froyo – which is frozen yogurt – and sorbet, is exported to 38 countries.

So, the introduction in today’s lesson was taken from a YouTube channel called Good Mythical Morning in a video titled "We Tried Every Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavor." In the video, the hosts did exactly that. They rated 52 different flavors made by the company and found their top three favorites.

The video is great for a few reasons. The first is that as an English learner, you’ll hear a plethora of adjectives to describe desserts. Nutty, chewy, chocolaty, peanut-buttery, bland, overly sweet, you name it. This video is jam-packed with adjectives.
