Just In Time For Inagauration [YES PECAN]

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

In yet another story of an enterprising business rallying around this exciting moment for our republic, the savvy hippies at Ben and Jerry’s have christened a new flavor for this inaugural month: Yes Pecan! (for those of you who need a little extra help: sounds like “Yes we can”). All January long you can waltz into your neighborhood scoop shop and purchase a cone of this limited edition flavor, which consists of “amber waves of buttery ice cream with roasted non-partisan pecans.” Proceeds from the sale of Yes Pecan! go to the Common Cause Education Fund, which encourages citizen participation in our democracy.

Connoisseurs will note that Ben and Jerrys has a long tradition of distilling our shared cultural experience into delicious ice cream flavors: recall Economic Crunch (1987 stock market crash); Rainforest Crunch (to raise awareness of deforestation); and, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Elton John plays in his 50th state!). (See the full list of retired flavors here.) Yum.

Thanks for your post!

In addition to the associated proceeds from the sales of the ice cream, Ben & Jerry’s will donate $1 for each person who signs up with Common Cause on Facebook (up to $10,000) during the month of January.
