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 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.

well - I have only eaten Ben and Jerry's ice cream once.... and after reading the lid (extreme liberal to say the least!) vowed never to again..... another reason to boycott in my opinion

I went to the Unilever website to see what other brands they make. As it turns out, I don't use 99.99% of their products any way.

LOL on the Unilever comment!

You can't make up this stuff.

Robert - go check out Orthometer (Fr Erik's blog) - he has a hilarious short post on this!

BTW - I think Hubby Hubby discriminates against the other "same sex" group. They should come out with a second flavor - call it "Double Cherry".
