Today in Trademark History: 10/6

October 6 has been a good day for Ben & Jerry’s trademark attorneys.  On this date in 1987, the CHERRY GARCIA mark was first registered as a U.S. trademark for “ice cream.”  Eleven years later, on October 6, 1998, the COFFEE COFFEE BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ mark was first registered as a U.S. trademark.  Both marks are unsurprisingly registered for “ice cream.”  The two registrations are both still in force, and the two flavors are both still delicious.
