Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream has just released a new flavor called "Imagine Whirled Peace". It is a toffee and fudge based ice cream complete with peace signs throughout, and the package includes a drawing by John Lennon and his signature.
The press release for the new ice cream says, "When Ben & Jerry's wanted to talk about peace, we couldn't think of a better person to exemplify the message than John Lennon. Through his art and lyrics he imagined a world without war and asked us all to 'Give Peace a Chance'.
"We hope this whirly mixture of toffee cookies and fudge peace signs enlightens your bellies and souls and makes you ask what you can do to promote peace in your lives."
The package also has a warning that the peace symbols in the ice cream were made made on a manufacturing line that also processes nuts. Yeah, I think "nuts" says it all. What next? "Long and Rocky Road"?
