Ben & Jerry's Adds Obama Inspired Yes Pecan! Flavor

Posted on January 6, 2009

Yes PecanBen & Jerry's has added a Barack Obama inspired ice cream flavor called Yes Pecan. The ice cream flavor is described as containing amber waves of buttery ice cream with roasted non-partisan pecans. Ben & Jerry's will be donating the proceeds of the Yes Pecan sales to the Common Cause Education Fund.

Coincidentally, Slate ran a contest back in March to come up with a Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor and Yes Pecan! was the winner. Some other ideas for flavors were Peanut Butter Barackle, Obamana Split, Baracky Road, Obamaberryand Barackadamia Nut. That's a graphic Slate came up with earlier this year pictured on the right.

We aren't sure Ben & Jerry's is packaging the Yes Pecan ice cream quite like that. They are probably just selling it by the scoop.
