Ben & Jerry's Just Debuted a New Flavor—and It's Even Better Than We Dreamed
Ben & Jerry's teased fans via Instagram yesterday with a shadowed image of their next ice cream debut, and it's even better than we could have imagined. Not only does Justice ReMix'd sound amazing—it's a swirl of chocolate and cinnamon ice creams with gobs (yes, GOBS) of cinnamon bun dough and spicy fudge brownies—but every pint also serves a greater purpose than just making our taste buds happy.
This new flavor serves as a not-so-sneaky advocate for criminal justice reform, as it was created in partnership with Advancement Project. This organization serves to protect the human rights of all Americans by supporting efforts to strengthen social justice movements and make a significant impact on policy change.
According to the Advancement Project's website, they hope this pint of sugar-and-spice ice cream will facilitate a conversation about the importance of racial equity and the need for criminal justice reform in our country. Plus, a portion of every purchase of Justice ReMix'd will go to the organization's National Office to support their work in criminal justice reform.

It's important to note this flavor does contain several allergens—milk, soy, eggs and wheat—and those with an allergy, intolerance or related illness can still donate to the cause, here. We can't wait to dig our spoon into this new flavor, and the good cause is more than just a cherry on top.
