    One of Ben and Jerry's most popular ice creams 'Chubby Hubby' will be sold under the new name 'Hubby Hubby' for the month of September to celebrate gay marriage in the company's home state of Vermont.

    One of Ben and Jerry's most popular ice creams 'Chubby Hubby' will be sold under the new name 'Hubby Hubby' for the month of September to celebrate gay marriage in the company's home state of Vermont.

    Ben and Jerry's Ice cream thinks the state of Vermont's decision to issue marriage licences to same-sex couples which came into effect Tuesday is a good reason to celebrate.
    Ben & Jerry’s aims to raise awareness of what it calls the "importance of marriage equality." And to show support for the legislation they will serve “Hubby Hubby” sundaes in Vermont Scoop Shops throughout the month of September.
    The celebration is being promoted in partnership with Freedom to Marry, a gay and non-gay partnership working to win marriage equality nationwide.
    Since being founded by two former hippies in Burlington, Vermont in 1978 the company has maintained a free thinking reputation even since it's sale to food giant Unilever in 2000 reports the Telegraph.
    Walt Freese, Chief Executive Officer of Ben & Jerry’s said in a press release, “At the core of Ben & Jerry’s values, we believe that social justice can and should be something that every human being is entitled to. From the very beginning of our 30 year history, we have supported equal rights for all people. The legalization of marriage for gay and lesbian couples in Vermont is certainly a step in the right direction and something worth celebrating with peace, love and plenty of ice cream.”
    The Hubby Hubby ice cream flavor consists of pretzel nuggets, which are covered in fudge and filled with peanut butter, in a vanilla malt ice cream base, which is itself swirled with fudge and peanut butter throughout.
    Iowa, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire have already passed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage while California's law allowing same-sex unions was overturned following a referendum.
    As reported by the Telegraph, earlier this year Ben and Jerry's marked Barack Obama's election as US president by renaming one of its nutty ice cream flavours "Yes Pecan".

    so ben and jerry, who pitches and who catches?
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.

    It's unfortunate that the founders and owners of such a good brand of ice cream are a couple of liberal douchebags, who openly support convicted cop killer, Mumia Abu Jamal.

    I knew that was coming up. They probably have a flavor for that, too.

    I'm sorry. I like Cherries Garcia, but ever since finding out about this fiasco, I have resorted to making it my own way or settling for someone elses imitation of it. No way in hell am I going to support a cop-killer or anyone who supports them. I don't care if they did sell their company to someone else. It appears the new owners aren't any better.

    I bet they even put nuts on the top of it upon request.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    That was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the topic. F*ck Ben and Jerry's!

    It's nice they want to support gay marriage, but that does not make up for the fact that they support and give money to a piece of sh*t that was rightfully convicted of murdering a police officer. F*ck Ben and Jerry's, and FRY MUMIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    CHIRP! CHIRP!
