Bernie Sanders got his sweetest endorsement yet on Monday when one of the founders of Ben & Jerry's unveiled an ice cream flavor for the Democratic presidential hopeful, inviting Sanders' backers to enjoy a spoonful of "Political Revolution."
The flavor named "Bernie's Yearning" is mint ice cream topped with a solid chocolate disk, to reflect Sanders' campaign theme of economic inequality, according to Ben Cohen, co-founder of Vermont-based Ben & Jerry's.
"The chocolate disc represents the huge majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1 percent since the end of the recession. Beneath it, the rest of us," according to the label, which suggests eaters smash up the chocolate and mix it with the ice cream.
"Nothing is so unstoppable as a flavor whose time has finally come. #FeelTheBern #BerniesYearning," Cohen said on both Twitter (@YoBenCohen) and his Facebook page.
