Ben & Jerry's UK Launches 'Apple-y Ever After' For Gay Marriage Equality
SF List ^ | March 15, 20122 | Brock Keeling

Posted on 03/15/2012 3:44:08 PM PDT by Beaten Valve

While Ben & Jerry's Taste The Lin-Sanity hit a mildly sour note upon its release — it initially featured fortune cookie bits, which offended some since Jeremy Lin was born here in 'Merica, so they were taken out of subsequent batches posthaste — their latest flavor, Apple-y Ever After, is sure to make better headlines and be a hit with fans of sweet treats and marriage equality. Actually, it's not really a new flavor, technically. Ben & Jerry's UK renamed their apple pie ice cream Apple-y Ever After "in an effort “to raise awareness about the importance of marriage equality." Because, you know, gay marriage is as American as apple pile. Or at least it will be.

They even gave the container a cute makeover, featuring two guys atop a wedding cake. Delightful.

“Apple pile”?? There’s a freudian typo if I’ve ever seen one ... LOL

Ben and Jerry’s ice cream supports yet another liberal cause. Call me shocked.

I would've thought it should be some kind of double fudge.

Gawd, I hate myself sometimes.

I’m confident that Michelle Obama will eat a quart tonight, just to support the cause.

Hey BenJer! How about marriage equality for dead people? A guy in Thailand married his dead girlfriend. Lovely wedding.

I'm proud to say that I have never tasted any B&J's product, and never will.

Blue Bell is the IC of choice for me.

I'd say Ben & Jerry are heading for strike two on flavor names. "Apple-y Ever After" for "gay ice cream? Apples are a fruit. A gay slang term is "fruit". Waiting for a backlash / schadenfreude moment.

This actually sounds like a pretty good flavor. Pity I’ll never buy it, nor any of their other products.

This is why I no longer buy this brand of ice cream. Vote with your wallet, folks.

However good Ben/Jerry’s may be, and whatever their politics, it fails on one important test — the “how much does it even cost in the first place” test. Too damn much, and that’s just at Walmart.
