Who’s up for a big bowl of Bernie’s Yearning?

null

Yeah, me neither.

But before we mock too harshly, the flavor from Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen is a socio-economic lesson in a one pint container:

Cohen’s website describes “Bernie’s Yearning” as plain mint ice cream beneath a solid layer of chocolate on top.

“The chocolate disc represents the huge majority of economic gains that gone to the top 1 percent since the end of the recession,” the flavor’s packaging states. “Beneath it, the rest of us.

So now you can devour the one percent before eating yourself. Symbolic cannibalism never tasted better! And the fact that it’s made by a Sanders super-fan who’s worth over a hundred million bucks but places himself among “the rest of us” makes it all even sweeter.

Soon some wealthy Clinton fan will counter with their own tribute ice cream: Bits O’ Hillary’s Hacking Cough:
