“In this handout photo provided by Ben & Jerry’s, a new flavor of ice cream is shown in honor of the comedian Stephen Colbert called, ‘Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream.’ It consists of vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and caramel. Announcing the new flavor Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007, Ben & Jerry’s called it: ‘The sweet taste of liberty in your mouth.’ (AP Photo/Ben & Jerry’s)”
“I’m not afraid to say it. Dessert has a well-known liberal agenda,” Colbert said in a statement. “What I hope to do with this ice cream is bring some balance back to the freezer case.”
