Now, You Can Finally Taste “Bernie’s Yearning” For Yourself
Ben Cohen, one of the co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s, decided to show his support for Bernie Sanders the only way he knows how: by making a limited-edition batch of ice cream so you can really #FeelTheBern. It’s plain mint ice cream with a disc of milk chocolate on top and it’s called “Bernie’s Yearning,” which is an irresponsible name for something as delicious and harmless as fucking ice cream.
If you like your ice cream politicized and enjoy eating something that involves actual, concerted effort, then hey, Bernie’s Yearning is just what you need. “The chocolate disk represents the huge majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1% since the end of the recession,” the back of the carton reads. “Beneath it, the rest of us.”
The ice cream will not be sold in stores, but if you’re so inspired to taste the yearning of a 74-year old socialist Senator from Vermont, run, don’t walk to the website, where you can enter to win one for yourself.
