Ben & Jerry's Partners with MoveOn.org to Promote 'Progressive Candidates'

You can’t even enjoy something as simple as ice cream without the flavor of politics mixing its unpalatable taste into it anymore.

Ben and Jerry’s co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have partnered with far-Left organization MoveOn.org to roll out a contest geared to “help 7 of the best progressive candidates running for Congress,” according to MoveOn.org's website.

According to the contest page:

We need a Democratic majority to check President Trump’s unrestrained power. And we also need to send progressive champions to Congress who will fix our health care system with Medicare for All, protect clean air and water, and get big money out of politics.

But we need your help! We need to come up with seven amazing ice cream flavors (and flavor names) that not only taste great but also capture the essence of what each candidate stands for. That’s a tall order, but we know that between all of us we can make it happen. We’ll select the winner and make a batch of each flavor that we’ll raffle off to support the candidates.

Leave it to a couple of “Bernie Bros.” to use capitalism to promote their narrative.

I wonder what flavors we could possibly see in the future? We’ve already seen flavors for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and late night host Stephen Colbert. Maybe we’ll get some new flavors, like “Salty Schumer,” “Pelosi Prune” or “Berry Angry Booker” flavored with real "tears of rage.”
