Ben & Jerry's Will End Sales of Our Ice Cream in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). We also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fans and trusted partners.

We have a longstanding partnership with our licensee, who manufactures Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Israel and distributes it in the region. We have been working to change this, and so we have informed our licensee that we will not renew the license agreement when it expires at the end of next year.

Although Ben & Jerry’s will no longer be sold in the OPT, we will stay in Israel through a different arrangement. We will share an update on this as soon as we’re ready.

Amazing, considering they are owned by the British giant corp Unilever.

5. So Palestinians living in the disputed territories don't get ice cream?

But people living in Israel proper do?

What a bizarre move.

6. I stopped eating B&J garbage years ago...

Forgive me for saying a bad word, lol...

McConnells Ice Cream

NO RELATION TO MITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I hope)

It's pricey. $8.99 a pt.

Absolutely tastes like the homemade stuff we used to make in Boy Scouts by hand.

Top notch and highly recommended.
