[Ed. – I guess they’re being coy and not actually producing a “Bernie ice cream” because not that many people would buy it.]
Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen announced Monday he has created a new flavor celebrating Benrie Sanders’s White House run.
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.
