Change The Whirled: Ben & Jerry’s And Colin Kaepernick Created A New Flavor

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.

The Tern BYB Bike Rides Big & Folds Small

The BYB bike ($2,500) isn’t just a folding bike—it’s a whole new way to fold a bike. It’s 30% smaller than traditional 20″ folding bikes, and folds small and slim enough to fit conveniently into lockers, closets, or any narrow space.

When folded, the BYB has one of the smallest footprints of any folding bike. That means a much easier time maneuvering it onto crowded trains and buses or when navigating through busy subway stations.

The BYB stands on its rack, and its built-in spinner wheels let you trolley the bike with one hand while the other holds your coffee.

The BYB delivers with a frame engineered for stiffness, larger 20″ wheels, and performance components.

The slim, small BYB fits just about anywhere—behind doors, under desks, in your closet. In fact, the BYB is a perfect fit for standard cabinets so whether you’ve got one, or more, the BYB will occupy minimal space in your place.

Homer Simpson Inducted Into Baseball Hall of Fame

Homer Simpson was “inducted” into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York Saturday during a ceremony that celebrated the 25th anniversary of the classic The Simpsons episode “Homer at the Bat.”

The episode, which aired in February 1992, featured guest appearances by MLB all-stars like Ozzie Smith, Ken Griffey Jr., Wade Boggs, Don Mattingly and Jose Canseco; Now Hall of Famers in their own right, Boggs and Smith were on hand to welcome Simpson in the Hall.

In a prepared statement, Simpson said, “My record for eating hot dogs will never be broken. I’ve been a fan for 40 years, which is how long some games take. And I can’t wait for the ceremony in Canton, Ohio.” (Canton is the home of the Football Hall of Fame.)

Simpsons executive producer Al Jean previously spoke to the Baseball Hall of Fame about “Homer at the Bat,” which finished Number 15 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 150 Best Simpsons Episodes.

“It’s definitely one you hear about a lot,” Jean said. “There’s nostalgia because a lot of people were kids when it first aired. Looking at it again, as I did recently, it’s a real glimpse of ’90s era baseball. Baseball has changed since then – it’s a different kind of game.”
