Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen has been “fantasizing” about what flavor ice cream the company might create for the U.S. Senator from Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Cohen tells CNN’s Carol Costello that it whatever it is would be sealed with a giant chocolate chip:
“The giant chip on the top represents all the wealth that’s gone to the top 1% of the population over the last 10 years. And the way you eat it is, you whack it with your spoon and then you mix it around.”
Cohen’s idea for the ice cream has been evolving since May, when Ben & Jerry’s helped launch the Sanders campaign. At that time, Cohen said:
Cohen said his flavor would be called “Bernie’s Rebellion” and would include ingredients designed to commemorate Sanders’ left wing positions.
“What would be in it? All good things,” Cohen said. “I mean, there might be some chocolate chips molded in the shape of a cap that you wear for graduation to symbolize his stance in favor of free college education and reduced student loan rates. I think that there might be equal numbers of peanuts and pecans to symbolize his initiatives to reduce economic inequality.”
