Ben & Jerry’s Israel Distances Itself From Anti-Trump Flavor

Ben & Jerry’s release of an anti-Trump flavor in collaboration with Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour has prompted the company’s Israeli franchise to distance itself from the ice cream giant.

The flavor called Pecan Resist “supports groups creating a more just and equitable nation for us all, and who are fighting President Trump’s regressive agenda,” Ben & Jerry’s said Tuesday.

Wednesday, the company’s Israel arm declared it would not be selling Pecan Resist: “We have no connection to the decisions made by the global brand, and we don’t get involved in local or world politics.”
