The ice cream makers at Ben & Jerry's want you to eat democracy with a spoon.
The company's latest flavor, dubbed "Empower Mint," is a peppermint ice cream with fudge brownies and fudge swirls. The new scoop, currently only available in a limited number of Ben & Jerry's stores, is a reflection of the company's stance on voting access laws.
Empower Mint comes just one month after founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield were arrested while protesting corporate money in politics and voting rights while in Washington, DC.
Currently, the company's site directs users interested in the new flavor to sign an online petition to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act.
