Ben & Jerry’sBen & Jerry’s said it wants to ‘peacefully resist the Trump administration’ with its new Pecan Resist flavour.

Ben & Jerry’s, a company known for being politically vocal, has released a new ice cream flavour called Pecan Resist that, according to the company’s website, is meant to “peacefully resist the Trump administration’s regressive and discriminatory policies.”

On its website, Ben & Jerry’s says the ice cream – made with chocolate ice cream, white- and dark-fudge chunks, walnuts, pecans, and fudge-covered almonds – is intended to support four organisations with similar values. Those organisations, which Ben & Jerry’s says are “working on the front lines of the peaceful resistance,” are Colour of Change, Honour the Earth, Neta, and Women’s March.

Ben & Jerry’sPecan Resist uses a chocolate base and is embedded with fudge, almonds, and pecans.

Through its release of Pecan Resist, the ice cream manufacturer says it wants to “build a future that values inclusivity, equality, and justice for people of colour, women, the LGBTQ community, refugees, and immigrants.”

The company partnered with artist and politican activist Favianna Rodriguez to create original artwork for the Pecan Resist’s tub. Rodriguez’s art focuses on the intersection of issues such as social justice and economic inequality.

Ben & Jerry’s explictly states that the ice cream is meant to support and celebrate those fighting President Donald Trump’s agenda, and, according to USA Today, the company will be donating $US25,000 to each of the four organisations.

Ben & Jerry’s has also created a form on its website for individuals to express their support for the participating organisations and for them to stay updated on similar campaigns.
