Ben and Jerry’s co-founder creates special flavor supporting Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders icecream

 

Ben Cohen, one of the co-founders of the ice cream brand, Ben & Jerry’s, has created a limited edition flavor in support of the presidential bid by their state’s senator, Bernie Sanders.

The flavor, “Bernie’s Yearning, ” not created for the brand but by Ben Cohen himself in his home kitchen and produced only 40 pints, 25 of which went to the Sanders campaign. The remaining 15 pints are up for grabs in a special contest.

It says on the package:

The entire top of this pint is covered with a thick disk of solid chocolate. Underneath is plain mint ice cream.

The chocolate disk represents the huge majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1% since the end of the recession. Beneath it, the rest of us.

The chosen few who get the pints are encouraged to use the back of a spoon and “whack the huge chocolate disk into lots of pieces, ” let the ice cream soften, mix the chocolate in and share with “your fellow Americans.”

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, are highly supportive of Sanders’s bid with Cohen noting:“Jerry and I have been constituents of Bernie Sanders for the last 30 years. We’ve seen him in action and we believe in him.”
