Save Our Swirled is more than just our newest “swirled-class” flavour: it’s a climate change message you can’t ignore.
Since the very beginning, Ben & Jerry’s has been a company with a passion for social justice. We’ve advocated for a broad range of causes over the years, and climate change is one we take particularly seriously... While we’ve been working tirelessly at cleaning up our own act and spreading the word around the world, we recognise that there’s power in numbers, and know that our passionate fans hold the greatest potential for positive change!
And what would a Ben & Jerry’s activism campaign be without a chunky, swirly, euphoric flavour of its own? That’s right; we created a flavour to bring attention to this historic issue, and to send out our own SOS for our planet... It's called Save Our Swirled, and features raspberry ice cream, marshmallow and raspberry swirls, plus dark and white chocolatey ice cream cones – the sweeter side of activism, and unlike any Ben & Jerry’s flavour before it! In the words of Chris Rivard, the Flavour Guru behind Save Our Swirled, “It’s sweet and refreshing with a chocolatey finish; truly a great flavour.”
Now available worldwide, look for Save Our Swirled in 500ml tubs or at your local Scoop Shop
Take Action On Climate:
But how do we tell the climate change story using ice cream? Dig out a chunky spoonful and you can’t help but notice the unique dark and white chocolatey ice cream cones that appear to be melting. Our stance on climate change and our ice cream is one in the same: if it's melted, it's ruined!
2015 is a critical year for climate change; later this year, leaders from around the world will gather in Paris, France for the UN Climate Summit— a meeting we hope will produce a legally binding agreement to keep global warming in check. After all...if it’s melted, it’s ruined.
