More Obama Love: Yes Pecan!

We’ve already given you a couple of things to do on January 20 to ring in our new Mr. President, but for the hedonists among us, here’s a much simpler way to get in the inaugural spirit: Go to any Ben & Jerry’s and order a scoop of the newest flavor, “Yes Pecan!”

Oh, those clever Vermonters. The ice cream is described as “amber waves of buttery ice cream with roasted non-partisan pecans.” We’re wondering if maybe those nuts, perhaps sourced from the great pecan-producing state of Texas, are B & J’s attempt at reaching across the aisle?

Order your scoop at any of the participating SF locations—proceeds will go to the Common Cause Education Fund, a nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy group founded to help ordinary citizens have a say in the political process.
