(WIAT) — Ben and Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen created a small batch of ice cream in honor of his favorite presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Cohen created 40 pints of “Bernie’s Yearning” in his own kitchen. It’s a mint flavored ice cream with chocolate chips.
Twenty five pints are being given away in a contest run by Sanders’ campaign.
The ice cream is branded as “Ben’s Best” and does not feature a Ben and Jerry’s logo, and is being kept separate from the brand.
The Vermont-based company has been outspoken on several political issues, but has never publicly endorsed a candidate.
Sanders has served as a Vermont senator since 2007.
