Ben & Jerry’s ice cream comes out with crazy new flavors every year. Only some of these flavors aren’t, um, so yummy. When people don’t like a flavor, the factory stops making it, and it goes to the Flavor Graveyard. The flavor gets a headstone with a little poem that says why that ice cream had to call it quits. As you can see, some flavors run for a few years, but others go quickly to their final resting place.

*Wee ones:* The flavor “Peanuts! Popcorn!” did not go over well. If it had peanuts, popcorn, cream, eggs, and sugar, how many ingredients (foods) were mixed into that one?

*Little kids:* Turtle Soup wasn’t so good either – it lasted only 4 years. How much longer than that have you been around? *Bonus: *If you eat a bowl of Turtle Soup, then Peanuts Popcorn, then Turtle Soup, then Peanuts! Popcorn!…what flavor do you eat in the 9^{th} bowl?

*Big kids:* Poor Tennessee Mud didn’t last long. If it showed up September 1988 and went to the graveyard in June 1989, during how many months was it around? *Bonus:* Bovinity Divinity’s chocolate cows were actually pretty tasty. If your bowl has 13 dark chocolate cows and 14 *more *white chocolate cows than that, how many cows do you have altogether?

Answers:*Wee ones:* 5 ingredients.

*Little kids:* Different for everyone…subtract 4 from your age. Or maybe you’re younger than Turtle Soup was! *Bonus:* That yummy Turtle Soup.

*Big kids:* 10 months. June is 9 months later, but we need to include September itself. *Bonus:* 40 cows, since there are 13 dark and 27 white.
