Artists and cultural leaders from Killer Mike to Danny DeVito are banding together to endorse Bernie Sanders. While Killer Mike showed his support by interviewing Bernie in an Atlanta barber shop, and DeVito publicly compared Sanders to Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ben Cohen (of Ben & Jerry’s fame) is #feelingthebern in his own sweet, sweet way.
Cohen, the co-founder and former CEO of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, whipped up a limited-edition batch of Bernie Sanders ice cream at home in his kitchen in Vermont. He made a total of 40 pints of Bernie’s Yearning, 25 of which he donated to Sander’s campaign.
While you can’t pick up a pint at your local grocery store, you can enter to win one of the 25 pints—all of which are autographed by Cohen—on berniesyearning.com.
The politically charged flavor features “a thick disk of solid chocolate” covering the top of plain mint ice cream. On the back of the pint, it explains that the chocolate disc 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.”
An ice cream that sums up what’s fundamentally wrong in this country? Sounds delicious.
And here are instructions for eating, according to Cohen: “You take your spoon and you whack that big chocolate disc into little pieces and mix it around,” he told New York Daily News. Get it? The action is representative of spreading the wealth and bridging the gap between rich and poor. “There you have it, Bernie’s Yearning.”
