Ok, I didn’t know who Rose Mattus was.   I am a fan of her product.  as all ice cream lovers are.   Rose and Reuben Mattus founded Häagen-Dazs,

Rose Mattus, who died on Tuesday aged 90, was the co-founder of Häagen-Dazs luxury ice cream; she spent her early childhood in the back streets of Manchester, and — to American ears — always spoke with an English accent.

Having emigrated to America as a young girl, Rose Mattus established the Häagen-Dazs brand with her husband Reuben in the Bronx district of New York in 1959. Reuben Mattus, a Polish immigrant, had started out in the 1920s selling his widowed mother’s lemon-flavoured ice from a horse-drawn wagon

Great ice cream, great story.
