March 14, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - As the UK Government moves in the direction of legalizing same-sex marriage, Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream has launched a lobbying campaign in support of the move that includes re-naming one of their ice cream flavors.
British Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone announced last September that the government was committed to legalizing same sex marriage by 2015, and would launch a consultation regarding the issue this spring.
In anticipation of the consultation, which will begin later this month, Ben & Jerrys announced yesterday that the flavor Oh! My! Apple Pie! will be called Apple-y Ever After in England. Its re-designed tub features a wedding cake decorated with rainbow stripes and topped with two groom figures.
Since our humble beginning 34 years ago, Ben & Jerrys has been an advocate for equal rights, said a statement on the companys website about the change. We were one of the first companies in the US back in 1993 that widened our health & employment benefits umbrella to recognize unmarried domestic partners regardless of their sexual orientation.

The flavor change is only one part of an-all out campaign in support of re-defining marriage in England. The company is urging customers to contact their local member of Parliament, and has even posted contact information and a form letter on their website.
The suggested letter to members of Parliament urges the government to provide equal access to marriage, and calls the up-coming consultation an opportunity to bring British law up to date with the society which we live in.
Customers who visit the site are also encouraged to marry someone of the same sex through a new Facebook App which the company has launched in partnership with the gay rights group Stonewall.
The app is featured prominently on the Ben & Jerry UK Facebook page, and participants are promised a chance of scooping a tub of your favourite flavour.
While the campaign might mark the companys most aggressive effort to re-define marriage, its not the first time that the notoriously left-wing ice cream giant has re-named one of its flavors in support of the gay agenda. Its Chubby Hubby flavor temporarily became Hubby Hubby in Vermont to celebrate the states legalization of gay marriage in 2009.
Ben & Jerry Ice Cream is also on the Life Decision International boycott list for its support of Planned Parenthood.
Avoiding this brand is not only beneficial to your health but also beneficial to our struggle against liberalism gone wild.

Don’t they already make fudge?
Talk about your low hanging fruit! They write themselves...
It’s chock full of nuts..
I quit buying it back when they supported Candy Shanihan or whatever her name was.
Ben & Jerry’s is now owned by Unilever. I know lots of libs were ticked off when B&Js “sold out” to the conglomeration.
Chunky Monkeys.....that was their autobiographical flavor.
The irony in the ‘gay marriage’ enthusiasm is that young heterosexual ‘couples’ are not getting married; they shack up - have children - move on to other partners and keep on trucking.
This modern trend has a devastating effect on the children - much the same as divorce in the 50’s & 60’s. However, today the men save divorce and alimony costs - as women get government (taxpayers’) assistance.
When the homosexuals get caught up in the expense of divorce and splitting assets - they’ll stop the foolishness.
I will NEVER buy those jackwagon’s products again- I know they sold out but their name is still on it and the thought of them just makes me nauseous.
I now buy Talenti Gelatto. (Try the Sicilian Pistachio or the Sea Salt Caramel.)
My nickname for this stuff is ‘foreplay’.
which is why they must own the media.
Now why did that double post?
I was looking at the title,
and it occurred to me that, soon, it will be a criminally prosecutable hate crime to put “marriage” in sarc-quotes when referring to homos.
Rump Ranger Rocky Road? Turd Burgler Butterscotch? Strawberry Buttcheese cake? LOL
Pretty silly. I’ll just stick with Turkey Hills butter pecan.
37 flavors all in one scooooooooooooooop
Appley ever after - Light chocolate ice cream with peanuts packed VERY TIGHTLY!
With Barack’s ugly face on the outside of the package.
Ya, I remember when they came out with sweaty balls ice cream. Why is this ok; why is this humorous? Or do you have to be liberal to “get” the humor here?
The Schweddy Balls idea came from an SNL skit, which appropriately enough, featured Alec Baldwin.
Well, it seems to me, if you can have sweaty balls ice cream, and that’s okay, then other things are okay too.
Let’s have Butt Fudge ice cream. If it’s okay to talk about balls, then we can talk about butts.
Been in Jerry’s.
but so appropriate also. ;o)
Ben deeply in Jerry.
Oooh, aaah. Flavor just right....let’s churn it
Have never bought these Marxist product..don’t know why anyone else does.
