A Kamala Harris Ice Cream Flavor Exists—and You Can Buy it Online
It’s a well-known fact that President-Elect Joe Biden is a fan of ice cream. From celebrating National Dessert Day on Instagram to sharing a scoop with Jimmy Fallon, Biden’s love for the dessert is clear. But despite Biden’s penchant for ice cream, Crank & Boom Craft Ice Cream decided to celebrate this historic election with a flavor honoring his running mate Kamala Harris instead.
In a media release, Crank & Boom Co-Founder Toa Green spoke about the decision to honor the Vice President-elect. “We are honoring Kamala Harris with this special flavor as a celebration for women everywhere, especially women of color, who are earning their seats at the tables that so many have fought for for so long,” she says.
While the shop has received mixed feedback about the “Kamala Pecan” flavor, she doesn’t let the negativity stop her “from speaking out and celebrating what is a momentous occasion for so many women of color.” This is especially important to Green, who is an Asian American, one half of an interracial marriage and the daughter of immigrants.
If you’re interested in trying it out for yourself, the “Kamala Pecan” flavor is a mix of salted caramel ice cream, candied pecans and salted caramel sauce, which sounds like the perfect combination of salty and sweet! You can buy the limited-edition “Kamala Pecan” flavor now and check out other Crank & Boom flavors including Blackberry & Buttermilk, Bourbon & Honey and Gooey Butter Cake (buy it: Goldbelly, $99 for six pints).
