The Only Thing Ben & Jerry Ever Fought About

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream may be the cutest friends ever. Apparently, according to a recent Esquire interview, they've only ever fought once, and it was over a very critical component of their ice cream: chunks.

BEN: I wanted really big chunks.

JERRY: It was more than that. Ben postulated that all our customers wanted really big chunks. As if everybody likes big chunks!

They went back and forth, but in the end, Ben got his way.

Ben was all about texture, while Jerry was more focused on flavor, Jerry told Esquire.

Only having one argument over the course of their friendship is seriously impressive, especially since they've known each other for a long time. The story about how they met is predictably pretty cute:

BEN: We were the two slowest, fattest kids in gym class. There was the whole class running around the track, and then half a lap behind there were two guys. So we were connected from the beginning.

And to this day, they're still great pals. "What's my definition of the word friend? That's easy: Ben," Jerry said.
