I just went looking for Yes Pecan, the newest (actually, just renamed) flavor of Ben & Jerry’s at Whole Foods. It wasn’t there—but I’m still full of hope (and, soon, Cherry Garcia, which was there). Now, it’s not just a cute name, and a new flavor—your purchase of Yes Pecan goes to support an Obama-worthy cause:

“YES PECAN!” An Inspirational Blend!  Amber Waves of Buttery Ice Cream With Roasted Non-Partisan Pecans. 

If you decide to indulge in some “Yes Pecan” in Scoop Shops during the month of January, Ben & Jerry’s is donating the proceeds to the Common Cause Education Fund.
