Yes Pecan!: Ben & Jerry's Announces Obama Ice Cream

Posted: Updated:

Ben and Jerry are it again: reintroducing classic flavors with clever new names. Now comes "Yes Pecan!" -- basically butter pecan -- as the unofficial Obama ice cream. Proceeds go to the Common Cause Education Fund.

From their website:

"YES PECAN!" An Inspirational Blend! Amber Waves of Buttery Ice Cream With Roasted Non-Partisan Pecans.

If you decide to indulge in some "Yes Pecan" in Scoop Shops during the month of January, Ben & Jerry's is donating the proceeds to the Common Cause Education Fund.

Common Cause is a nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization founded as a vehicle for citizens to make their voices heard in the political process.
