Ben & Jerry’s flavor pro-gay marriageMarch 17,2012
MONTPELIER — Ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s is supporting gay marriage in Britain by repackaging an apple pie flavor as “Apple-y Ever After.”
The Vermont-based subsidiary of the global food and cosmetics conglomerate Unilever is issuing the newly labeled ice cream in the United Kingdom as the British Parliament begins debating legislation that would allow same-sex couples to marry.

Ben & Jerry’s has been involved in progressive political causes since its founding in 1978.
