It looks like there is going to be a brand new flavor from ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s, where its co-founder, Ben Cohen, announced earlier today that he has come up with a limited edition ice cream flavor in order to honor Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Cohen shared, “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.”
This is certainly a novelty when you think about it, and Cohen himself has already put up an image that depicts a pint of “Bernie’s Yearning” over on Facebook, where it was accompanied by the words, “Nothing is so unstoppable as a flavor whose time has finally come.” “Bernie’s Yearning” has been described to be a thick layer of solid chocolate at the top, while your tongue will be able to make out the plain mint ice cream that is located underneath. The packaging for this flavor mentions, “The chocolate disc represents the huge majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1 percent since the end of the recession. Beneath it, the rest of us. Dig in, and share with your fellow Americans.”
Only 40 pints of ice cream were made in Cohen’s kitchen, and 25 of them have already been donated to the Sanders for President Campaign, while the rest are being given away in a contest.
