The (Never-Ending) Ben & Jerry's Challenge


This challenge is original to SCC!

However, the inspiration for this challenge comes from southpaw285's Crazy Chocolate Challenge from Crazy Challenge Connection and Dawn (Kat N Hat)'s BeanBoozled Challenge from The Lost Challenges.

Photobucket


Duration Level 1: Years and Years
Duration Level 2: Until the apocalypse
Duration Level 3: Finish? Ha Ha!

I love love love Ben & Jerry's! I don't know if it's available to all of you but if you can't get it you're missing out! You can check out more about them here.

The idea of this challenge is to spell out every flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

Level 1: Using the Current Flavors list, spell out every flavor
Level 2: Using the Flavor Graveyard list, spell out every flavor
Level 3: Spell out both lists. You must either be a Ben & Jerry's fanatic, or completely nuts!

Click on the spoilers to view the lists.

Since this is such a long challenge, you may use each book twice. Once for the title, and a second time for the author.

You can work one flavor at a time, or all of them at once. It's up to you.

Current Flavors as of July 2017
50 Flavors
(view spoiler)

Retired Flavors as of July 2017
34 Flavors
(view spoiler)


The Current Flavors:
43 Flavors / 617 Total Letters

(view spoiler)

In The Flavor Graveyard (Retired Flavors):
50 Flavors / 811 Letters

(view spoiler)

You may also find this post helpful. Bree has broken them down by letter as well. Thanks Bree!

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) OK, so I *think* I figured out a strategy, lol...I plugged the list into Word and did a search and word count for each letter...this is what I came up with (though my addition gives me 617 letters for the current flavors, instead of 616, and I checked twice)...

CURRENT FLAVORS
breakdown by letter

A = 58
B = 22
C = 54
D = 14
E = 78
F = 9
G = 9
H = 37
I = 35
J = 0

L = 31
M = 18
N = 31
O = 41
P = 16
Q = 0
R = 38
S = 18
T = 35
U = 28
V = 6
W = 6
X = 0
Y = 11
Z = 2

GRAVEYARD FLAVORS
breakdown by letter

A = 75
B = 26
C = 60
D = 15
E = 88
F = 13
G = 14
H = 34
I = 46
J = 4

That's fantastic Bree! Maybe I'll add a link to your post in the main rules if you're ok with that?

As for the letter count, I'm sure you are correct! I counted them myself without my glasses on and it was after my bedtime. lol

I wouldn't be surprised if the count on the graveyard flavors was wrong also.


message 38: by Bree (new)

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) LOL, I'm impressed that you were only out by 1, that's a LOT of counting, hahaha (I tried counting the E's visually, what a laugh...)

I plugged the Graveyard in and did the letter counts, let me add them up and see if we match... :)

And I'm totally fine with you linking that up (I've got them both in the post now)...

Oh dear! It was so easy to ignore all those nasty vowels when they were hidden in among the words, but now they're all mocking me.
At least there are no Q's or X's.

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) To be honest, I thought there would be WAY more C's than there turned out to be...kinda surprised as well at the number of vowels, hahaha...

Hettie | 18 comments E I'm not worried about. I have lots of e authors. Elinor Brent dyer, David eddings and Elizabeth Peters among others.

The u and the o however are more worrying.

Maybe we should have a help thread where we can recommend useful books or authors. Can't worry to much at the moment though as on my read rate at the moment it is going to take me over 5 years to complete it!

My inclination is to say no to A, And, The. BUT, since this is such a long challenge, I will leave it to each individual to decide. Personally, I'm going to ignore them but if you'd like to use them it's ok. :)
