Are you ready to feel the Bern? Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen is taking politics to the next level with the creation of a limited edition Bernie Sanders inspired flavor: Bernie’s Yearning.


Story continues below

Here’s how the flavor is described on the label:

“The entire top of this pint is covered with a thick disc of solid chocolate. Underneath is plain mint ice cream. 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.”

Cohen created just 40 pints of the limited-edition batch. Among those, 25 were donated to Sanders’ campaign to be given away in an online contest.

Here’s the great part, you can win a pint! That’s right, a contest page has been set up where you can enter to win your very own pint of Bernie’s Yearning. So head over there now and sign up for a chance to win a delicious pint of the most political ice cream ever created!

Each limited-edition pint is numbered and signed by Cohen. It’s a treat within a treat.

Cohen even provides eating instructions:

  1. Take back of spoon and whack huge chocolate disc into lots of pieces.
  2. Let the ice cream soften up a bit, mix the pieces around – and there you have it, Bernie’s Yearning.
  3. Dig in, and share it with your fellow Americans!

If Bernie doesn’t win, at least we’ll know he can take a licking.

Nothing is so unstoppable as a flavor whose time has finally come #FeelTheBern #BerniesYearning:
