Irony Abounds As Foreign-Owned Ben And Jerry’s Launches Anti-Trump ‘Pecan Resist’ Ice Cream Flavour

Ben & Jerry's is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Unilever, the British-Dutch consumer products company. So if you oppose foreign interference in American elections (say, Russia 2016) or corporate involvement in American elections (say, you disagree with the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision), or even if you just prefer your ice cream with hot fudge or whipped cream on top rather than partisan politics, maybe choose a different brand?

Just in time for the midterm elections, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream has launched “pecan resist,” a flavor the company says is meant to convey that “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.”

Oh, the irony of it all! (You can’t see but I am rolling my eyes for dramatic effect as I type this). Ultra-Liberal hippies Ben and Jerry’s have decided to go all Michael Moore and devote a flavour to the fruitless effort of resisting President Donald J. Trump. In fact, their brand-new flavour is aptly entitled ‘Resist’. Why is this ironic, and why I am spelling the word ‘flavor’ as ‘flavour’?

Because Ben and Jerry’s is not an American company, they are, since 2000, 100% owned by British-Dutch conglomerate Unilever. So that makes Ben and Jerry’s a foreign product from a foreign country, and thus disqualifies them from discussing anything having to do with American politics or elections. After all, isn’t stopping the meddling by foreign actors in American politics the whole reason behind the ‘Resist’ movement? Hey Arsenio, another thing that makes you go ‘hmmmm’.

How am I going to celebrate the Red Wave victory at the ballot box on November 6th? With a half-gallon of Ben and Jerry’s ‘Resist’, a big spoon, and my red MAGA hat.

Ben and Jerry’s ‘Resist’

Ben & Jerry’s is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Unilever, the British-Dutch consumer products company. So if you oppose foreign interference in American elections (say, Russia 2016) or corporate involvement in American elections (say, you disagree with the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision), or even if you just prefer your ice cream with hot fudge or whipped cream on top rather than partisan politics, maybe choose a different brand?

I guess in Ben & Jerry’s defense, it also took on President Obama back in 2015 by criticizing his Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact. Maybe Ben & Jerry’s should roll out a flavor devoted to thanking Trump for killing the TPP?
