Things are looking pretty sweet for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The founders of Ben & Jerry's are showing their support for the candidate by passing out free scoops of the company's Bernie-inspired ice cream in New York City today.
The flavor is called Bernie's Yearning and is basically a classic creamy mint base with a solid disc of chocolate on top. "The entire top of Bernie's Yearning is covered with a thick disc of solid chocolate, which represents the huge majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1%," Ben and Jerry explained on berniesyearning.com.
On the website, cofounder Ben Cohen stated that while the two have long been supporters of the Vermont senator, Bernie's Yearning won't be a permanent part of the brand's ice cream collection. Instead, the duo donated a limited amount of the flavor to the Bernie Sanders campaign and gave some out to lucky winners of a drawing. The presidential hopeful himself got to try it for the first time, and judging by his enthusiastic reaction, it definitely has his stamp of approval.
