MALTA, NY (1010 WINS) -- An upstate man got some help on his wedding proposal from a couple of friends names Ben and Jerry.

Angelo Orlando got down on one knee in the ice cream aisle of a supermarket in the Saratoga County town of Malta and presented his girlfriend Kelly Becker with a pint of Ben and Jerry's called 'Marry Me Mint.'

Turns out, Becker's favorite flavor is mint, and Orlando worked with the staff of Ben and Jerry's to make the special pint.

The proposal went down in July. Becker said yes, and a wedding is planned for October of next year.

To celebrate, the couple took a trip to the company's Waterbury, Vermont factory to see how the ice cream is made.
