Ben Cohen (March 18, 1951)
Along with Jerry Greenfield (birthday March 14), Ben Cohen founded Ben and Jerry's ice cream. It's now owned by some big corporation, but I always loved the ice cream and admired the spirit of fanciful names and ice cream loaded with goodies. Cherry Garcia was always one of my favorites. It's sad that they are no longer natural and organic, but the ice cream still tastes very good to me.
