Hubba hubba, Hubby Hubby

Yesterday gay couples began to legally wed in the great state of Vermont. Vermont, now known for its stance on marriage equality, has always been a state for lovers. Lovers of ice cream that is.

Ben & Jerry’s, the offbeat ice cream brand, makers of Cherry Garcia and Phish Food, have renamed their classic Chubby Hubby. The new name, Hubby Hubby, will be produced for the month of September.

“At the core of Ben & Jerry’s values, we believe that social justice can and should be something that every human being is entitled to,” said Walt Freese, Ben & Jerry’s CEO. And while most gay men shy away from ice cream, especially during summer beach months, this calls for falling off the wagon and indulging a bit in ice cream and civil rights.
