Apple-y Ever After: Ben & Jerry's supports marriage equality in UK with ice cream

Ben-and-Jerrys-Appley-Ever-After.jpgWho knew marriage equality could be so tasty? In a show of support for the legalization of marriage for same-sex couples in the UK, Ben & Jerry's has renamed its Apple Pie flavor Apple-y Ever After.

This isn't the first time the ice cream company has supported marriage equality with ice cream: In 2009, Ben & Jerry's renamed Chubby Hubby to Hubby Hubby to celebrate gay marriage legalization in Vermont.

Gay rights organization Stonewall has drafted a Parliamentary Bill for legal marriage to encompass same-sex couples. The UK government is debating the issue this month.

Ben & Jerry's has also created a Facebook app, where users can "marry" someone of the same sex to show solidarity for the cause.

Of course, whether gay or straight, if there's a bump in the marriage road, there's always Chocolate Therapy, which hopefully won't be followed by the not-so-tasty flavor Banana Splitsville.
