Ben & Jerry’s ‘OccuPie Wall Street’ Flavor Should Be Real
Ice cream wizards Ben & Jerry’s have been outspoken in their support of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests. Sadly, the “new” B&J’s flavor “OccuPie Wall Street” is not real. Turns out it’s a spoof done by the folks at Tauntr as a follow-up to their Occupy Sesame Street parody that popped up on the Web earlier this week.
In a gentle jab to the movement’s unfocused nature, the flavor is described as, “Apple pie ice cream with some other good stuff in there we think. We’re not really sure. Nobody can explain it to us.”
Since the flavor is fake, Ben & Jerry’s won’t have worry about a boycott like they did with the recently announced Alec Baldwin Schweddy Balls ice cream. Ben and Jerry can only handle so many hacky sack sit-ins.
