I get it that some companies have political leanings, and a couple of ice cream making hippies would, of course, side with the left.
The ice cream creators at Ben & Jerry’s are no strangers to introducing politics into their product, and their latest flavor is pretty on the nose with how anti-Trump it is.
Introducing “Pecan Resist.”
Today we launch Pecan Resist! This flavor supports groups creating a more just and equitable nation for us all, and who are fighting President Trump’s regressive agenda. Learn more and take action here >> https://t.co/Bi8YE1FvOZ pic.twitter.com/Kr6CKBX1sc

It even comes with a fun video.
According to Ben & Jerry’s, “Pecan Resist” (pronounced pee-can resist, which… come on. They didn’t workshop that a bit more?) is a flavor that bears the message of Resistance with every pint:
Alongside all those nutty chunks, this pint packs a powerful message under its lid: together, we can build a more just and equitable tomorrow. We can peacefully resist the Trump administration’s regressive and discriminatory policies and build a future that values inclusivity, equality, and justice for people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, refugees, and immigrants. Pecan Resist supports four organizations that are working on the front lines of the peaceful resistance, building a world that supports their values. Get to know them, then find Pecan Resist here!
Ben & Jerry’s says that profits from the ice cream will go to support certain organizations, including the Women’s March, which is led in part by Linda Sarsour, a pro-Sharia anti-Semite whose feminism stops where other women’s objections about it begin.
Take, for instance, this tweet of Sarsour’s about Bridgette Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali who was the victim of female genital mutilation.
I’m not sure what flavor Ben & Jerry’s will create to celebrate feminist threats of violence against victims of barbaric practices, but I’m sure they’ll get on it right away.
