Another Reason to Love Ben & Jerry

.
As if you needed another reason to love Ben & Jerry. The company known for its hormone-free ice ice cream,  thoroughly uncorporate approach to naming flavors, and support of social causes, announced yesterday that to celebrate gay couples' newly won freedom to marry  in their home state of Vermont, it's changing the name of one of its flavors for the month of September. Chubby Hubby is now, tah-dah, Hubby Hubby.


They've also changed to packaging to reflect the Freedom to Marry theme. Notice the two grooms on the wedding cake. And can you see that they're, well, chocolate and vanilla?  (For Bears, of course, the original name works just fine.) 

Personally, I'm going to celebrate celebrate with a pint of Pistachio Pistachio.

hoorah! Thanks for sharing that. :) I always love your posts but this is a nice bit of news close to my heart. My friends are getting married (civil union) here in the UK next summer, and I like to have the option open ;)

Cute theme, but heath bar crunch and phish food are still my favs.
