I scream, you scream, we all scream for . . .

. . . Ben & Jerry's Yes Pecan! ice cream!!

Get it? Yes Pee-can? Sounds like . . . Yes We Can (unless you're from Texas, where we pronounce it "puh-kahn")?

Yep, you got it - B&J's has introduced this special inaugural flavor this month in honor of our incoming President's rallying campaign cry.

According to Ben & Jerry's, Yes Pecan! is an "Inspirational Blend! Amber Waves of Buttery Ice Cream With Roasted Non-Partisan Pecans."

But delicious is just the tip of the ice-cream-berg . . . B&J's, not to be outdone as do-gooders, is offering an incentive to indulge: order some Yes Pecan! at one of the treat twosome's Scoop Shops during January, and Ben & Jerry's will donate the proceeds to the Common Cause Education Fund.

Common Cause is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, advocacy organization, founded to help citizens be heard in the political process and to hold elected leaders accountable. The Common Cause Education Fund conducts research, education and outreach activities.

Additionally, B&J's is contributing $1 to Common Cause for every person who either joins Common Cause or donates $1 to the organization.

Thanks go to my big sis for letting me in on this excellent excuse to enjoy something sweet and frozen for the upcoming festivities!!
