Let this be a lesson to the porn industry: make hardcore films that spoof Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors, and the outcome won’t be so sweet.
I got a good chuckle out of Caballero Video’s Ben & Jerry’s-inspired titles like “Hairy Garcia” “Boston Cream Thigh,” and “Peanut Butter D-Cup,” but the ice cream makers didn’t find them quite so amusing. Nor did they like the twisting of their “famous and distinctive” logo from “Vermont’s Finest” to “Porno’s Finest” or the the compromising positions those innocent, grazing cows were put in.
Ben & Jerry’s slapped Caballero Video with a big, old law suit yesterday, requesting profits from the films and unspecified damages for exploiting their wholesome brand and ripping off their logo. [NY Post]

This has to be too good to be true: apparently, Ben & Jerry’s is working on developing an ice cream that contains anti-aging antioxidants. So now when you devour a pint of Chubby Hubby, you’ll think it’s OK because you’re helping out your skin. Except … really? This stuff is gonna be calorie-free, right? What? It’s not? (Fingers in ears.) We’re not listening! Can’t hear you! La la la la la! [Allure] Keep reading »
Ben & Jerry’s is showing their support for marriage equality by changing their iconic ice cream flavor “Chubby Hubby” to “Hubby Hubby” as of today. Sept. 1 is the first day gay couples can marry in the state of Vermont, where Ben & Jerry’s is based. The brand is celebrating the occasion by partnering with Freedom to Marry “to raise awareness about why marriage equality matters and encourage nationwide support for the freedom to marry.” Cool huh?
