In celebration of Barack Obama’s upcoming inauguration Ben & Jerry’s is now selling a new flavor – Yes Pecan! An Inspirational Blend: Amber Waves of Buttery Ice Cream With Roasted Non-Partisan Pecans. Proceeds from sales of Yes Pecan! during January will be donated to the Common Cause Education Fund. According to Ben & Jerry’s site:
Common Cause is a nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization founded as a vehicle for citizens to make their voices heard in the political process. They are committed to honest, open and accountable government, as well as encouraging citizen participation in democracy. Their Education Fund conducts research, education, and outreach activities.
Delicious new celebratory ice cream + charitable donation… Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
