A New York man who wanted to pop the question to his girlfriend got a little help from Ben & Jerry’s to make it happen. Angelo Orlando knew his girlfriend Kelly Becker’s favorite ice cream flavor was mint, so he enlisted the help of the ice cream company’s Burlington, Vermont location to create a pint of it labeled, “Marry Me Mint.”
The family was having a barbeque earlier that day and Orlando gathered everyone to go to the store for ice cream afterward.
"I didn't want to go to the grocery store because it was late at night and we had just been there earlier in the day to pick up snacks," Becker said.
Orlando had hidden the pint in the back of the freezer and then showed it to Kelly asking her 'have you ever heard of this flavor'. He then got down on one knee and pulled a diamond out of his pocket. He gave her the ring and she said “yes!”
He says he “really wanted it to be a shock,” and that’s exactly what it was for the surprised bride-to-be.
