Ben and Jerry's Celebrate "Gay Marriage".
To celebrate the legalization of same sex marriage in Vermont, Ben and Jerry's has renamed one of it's ice cream flavors - Chubby Hubby - to Hubby Hubby.
According to the Ben and Jerry's website;
"In partnership with Freedom to Marry we are gathered here to celebrate Vermont and all the other great states where loving couples of all kinds are free to marry legally. We have ceremoniously dubbed our iconic flavor, Chubby Hubby to Hubby Hubby in support, and to raise awareness of the importance of marriage equality."
A telegraph.co.uk article states;
"The firm has striven to retain its freethinking reputation despite its 2000 sale to food giant Unilever......"
It shouldn't come as a surprise that Unilever would be in favor of same sex marriage. After all, Unilever also makes Vaseline.
