Politics touches nearly every area of our lives. From friendships, to workplaces and in some instances, even in our places of worship, politics of the day seems to ultimately infiltrate and make for tension-filled situations.
Well, add one more place where politics has invaded: dessert. Yes, we’re not even able to escape politics while enjoying a meal.
Thanks to ice cream makers Ben & Jerry’s you can now resist while enjoying a cool treat. That’s because their newest flavor is, get this: Pecan Resist.
According to the company’s website, the ice cream is meant to protest the President Trump and his administration. Seriously, the new flavor is described in the following manner:
We can peacefully resist the Trump administration’s regressive and discriminatory policies and build a future that values inclusivity, equality, and justice for people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, refugees, and immigrants. Pecan Resist supports four organizations that are working on the front lines of the peaceful resistance, building a world that supports their values.
It was even important enough to create a video introducing their new flavor.
