It took same-sex couple quite a while to get the right to marry. But it did not take them nearly as long to get a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor celebrating that right.
Always on the cutting edge, both with their progressive views and, apparently, their ability to get a new product to market quickly, Ben & Jerry’s announced Friday that they’d be changing the name of their “Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough” ice cream to “I Dough, I Dough” – making the proclamation just hours after the landmark Supreme Court decision in favor of gay marriage. They even had images of the packaging lined up and ready to go. Maybe Jerry has a secret second gig as one of John Robert’s law clerks.
