Another Reason to Love Ben & Jerry’s

Ice cream gods Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have not only launched a new ice cream — “Cherries for Change” — in support of presidential hopeful Barack Obama, they’ve also just unveiled two new Honda Elements they’re calling “ObamaMobiles” that they are loaning to his campaign.

The reason for the endorsement of B&J? “If there was ever a need for real change, and if there ever was a candidate to inspire us and make that happen, it’s now,” said Ben Cohen. It’s something that truly resonates with the duo, who opened their ice cream shop 30 years ago in Burlington by doing things differently, “instead of copying the ‘tired ways’ of doing business.”

Hope they have some of that ice cream at the ballot boxes on March 4. Read more here.
