Ben & Jerry’s Releases a New Politically-Inspired Flavor
Ben & Jerry's has a history of getting involved in politics, so this new ice cream flavor doesn't come as much of a surprise. Does that mean we aren't excited? HECK NO. We'll always get excited about a new Ben & Jerry's flavor. Their new ice cream flavor called 'Pecan Resist' is meant to 'peacefully resist the Trump administration's regressive and discriminatory policies', according to their website.
So, what delicious flavors make up this new political treat? Ben & Jerry's says -
The ice cream is made with chocolate ice cream, white- and dark-fudge chunks, walnuts, pecans, and fudge-covered almonds.
And what exactly does this new flavor stand for? Well, they're partnering with 4 organizations whose values they believe in.
Ben & Jerry's website details -
We can peacefully resist the Trump administration’s regressive and discriminatory policies and build a future that values inclusivity, equality, and justice for people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, refugees, and immigrants.
Pecan Resist is currently available by the pint for $6.99 on Ben & Jerry's website and at local Ben & Jerry's scoop shops.
