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
Never buy ice cream from two Marxists!
Just the right flavor after applying makeup with the eyePad.
Aint it great I never buy their frozen swill?
Ben and Jerry’s ice cream supports yet another liberal cause. Call me shocked.
Borden and Bluebell still make good ice cream - just sayin
Take heed, people! Don’t “RUSH” to buy their ice crean. Try COLDSTONE! Wonderful,
I’m confident that Michelle Obama will eat a quart tonight, just to support the cause.
Wasn’t one of these idiots the guy who drove around with the “pants on Fire” effigy of GWB?
Comrade, this is America!
Merely a temporary oversight.
Hey BenJer! How about marriage equality for dead people? A guy in Thailand married his dead girlfriend. Lovely wedding.
Blue Bell is the IC of choice for me.
Oooooo that is fantastic, and heart-healthy, too!! /s
Bung hole Barry
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.
i tried Ben & Jerry’s one time, to see if i was missing anything...and i wasn’t
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.
