Ben & Jerry’s Releases ‘Pecan Resist’ Ice Cream


The limited edition flavor takes a stand against regressive government policies.

Just a few weeks before the midterm elections, Ben & Jerry’s has released a politically-charged ice cream flavor. “Pecan Resist” is the brand’s newest limited edition flavor, the name serving as a salute to groups fighting against the Trump administration’s policies.

The ice cream’s packaging prominently displays figures of different ethnicities united in a common resistance. Even the flavor itself is a melting pot, blending chocolate ice cream with white and dark fudge chunks, pecans, walnuts, and chocolate-covered almonds.

The company is also using “Pecan Resist” to back organizations that are making positive change in the world, including Neta, Women’s March, Color of Change, and Honor the Earth.

If you want to get involved in the resistance, you can sign up to learn more about these various organizations on the Ben & Jerry’s website.
