Ben & Jerry’s was inspired by Colin Kaepernick’s bold activism for racial justice that they did what they do best: The Vermont based ice cream company whipped up a euphoric flavor to honor his work.
Ben & Jerry’s Colin Kaepernick’s Change The Whirled Non-Dairy is made with sunflower butter and is 100% certified vegan, just like Kaepernick himself. And Kaepernick’s portion of the proceeds go to Know Your Rights Camp, an organization he founded to empower Black and Brown youth and elevate the voices of the next generation of racial justice leaders. Know Your Rights Camp hosts free camps across America and internationally, engaging Black and Brown youth around social justice issues through education and self-empowerment.
Ben & Jerry’s is proud to be working with a dedicated activist like Colin Kaepernick, whose work helped spark the international conversation around racial justice. Follow the graham cracker and chocolate cookie swirls as you dig into this cara-melt-in-your-mouth vegan dessert masterpiece and consider how you, too, can help change the whirled.
The new flavor will hit store shelves in early 2021.
