This is a fun political story.
The new offering is called: 'Bernies Yearning'...not the most clever of names...but it makes one wonder if there will flavors for other candidates coming from these pioneers of deliciousness.
We can also only wonder what ingredients besides mint and chocolate will be in this epicurean delight.


Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen announced Monday he has created a new flavor celebrating Benrie Sanders’s White House run.

“Nothing is so unstoppable as a flavor whose time has finally come,” Cohen wrote on his Facebook page alongside a picture displaying a pint of “Bernie’s Yearning” ice cream.

The new flavor isn't an official Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

“Jerry and I have been constituents of Bernie Sanders for the last 30 years,” Cohen said of the longtime Vermont senator. But he noted that his company with fellow co-founder Jerry Greenfield is not directly involved with the flavor.

“We’ve seen him and we believe him,” he continued on a website touting the ice cream. "When we’re out speaking on his behalf people always ask if there’s a Ben and Jerry’s flavor.

“There’s not,” Cohen added. "But if I were going to come up with one, this is what it would be.”

Cohen’s website describes “Bernie’s Yearning” as plain mint ice cream beneath a solid layer of chocolate on top.

“The chocolate disc represents the huge majority of economic gains that gone to the top 1 percent since the end of the recession,” the flavor’s packaging states. "Beneath it, the rest of us.

Eating instructions include taking a spoon and whacking the chocolate disc “into lots of pieces”; mixing the chocolate pieces around; and sharing the result with “your fellow Americans."

Cohen has created only 40 pints of the ice cream, and 25 were sent to Sanders's campaign.

A contest is being held to determine the winners of the final 15 cartons.

Trump Card-iac: filled with hot air and new found Jesus-y deliciousness. It scares the s*** out of Mexicans.

There it is. I came here to post the "free ice cream" joke with hopes someone had beaten me to it.

The obvious name for the Bernie Sanders flavor would be Sanders Socialist Sundae.

Any capitalists out there that want to have China come up with a mini Bernie Sanders jack hammer to bust up that frozen chocolate disc on top? Think of all the Sanders supporters who hate Capitalism that will buy it because it is CUTE!


Make it so you can hook up to your cell phone or plug it into a USB port and we have a winner?

Sadly, I am having too much fun with this thread.......

The new offering is called: 'Bernies Yearning'.


Are they going to charge and make profit of the Socialist 'Bernies Yearning' ice cream or they going to make the guy behind you pay?

For the Trumpattack flavor are they just going to take what they feel its worth?

For the hillarySwitchbait flavor are they going to sell you a chocolate scoop but give you vanilla scoop?

I'm going to start making a Trump/Hillary medley. I will just crap in jar, add some sugar, and throw it in the freezer. I will assume anyone who eats it is an idiot.

The excise tax is going to the Detroit Public School System.

Maybe the Citizens can be lucky enough to see 10% of the proceeds after administrative costs.
