Summer is on its way, and we're all looking forward to enjoying long afternoons on the beach, a tall glass of lemonade on the patio, and a new pair of cool shades.
To celebrate the summer we've all been waiting for, Ben & Jerry's has launched a brand new flavor of ice cream, and we can't wait to try it!
Every time the much-loved ice cream company releases a new flavor, we get super excited. Luckily, they come up with limited-edition flavors all year long to replace our usual choices of Chunky Monkey, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, or Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
Back in the early spring, Ben & Jerry's announced three new flavors inspired by breakfast cereal: Fruit Loot, Frozen Flakes, and Cocoa Loco. Not only are the names super witty, but we think it's a great idea to turn your favorite cereal into a frozen treat.
But their newest limited-edition flavor inspired by Bob Marley's hit song One Love is a step in a different direction.
Ben & Jerry's reportedly worked in partnership with the Marley family to produce the flavor, which will help support "a youth empowerment program in Jamaica." The flavor, called "Bob Marley's One Love," has non-GMO and fair-trade ingredients with responsibly sourced packaging.
According to the Ben & Jerry's website, the flavor is banana ice cream with caramel & graham cracker swirls with fudge peace signs. Yum!
"We bring you this cool concoction as a tasty tribute to the legendary Bob Marley. In partnership with the Marley family, this flavor will help to fund a youth empowerment program in Jamaica - music to your ears AND your tastebuds!" their website says.
By purchasing One Love ice cream, you're not only enjoying a tasty treat, but also benefiting children's lives. A portion of the proceeds will go towards One Love Youth Camp, a program that teaches youth how art and music can benefit their lives and social connections.
"Bob Marley stood for more than just music - he advocated for social change and inspired millions to think about peace, love, and equality," said Ben & Jerry’s CoFounder Jerry Greenfield. "Ben & Jerry’s has long strived to champion love and social justice, and by partnering with the Marley family we’re happy to play a small role in supporting Marley’s vision for a sweeter world."
We couldn't love this more. If you want to buy a pint of the ice cream, it's available in the US for just $4.99 for a limited time!
We want to hear from you! Would you try this Bob Marley inspired flavor? Leave a comment and SHARE this post with your friends!
