Take Back Congress, Flavor by Flavor!

Nothing is so unstoppable as a flavor whose time has finally come.

Hi, we’re Ben and Jerry, the co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s. We’re teaming up with MoveOn to help 7 of the best progressive candidates running for Congress. We need a Democratic majority to check President Trump’s unrestrained power. And we also need to send progressive champions to Congress who will fight for health care as a human right, protect clean air and water, and get big money out of politics.

With the help of MoveOn members, we came up with seven amazing ice cream flavors (and flavor names) that not only taste great but also capture the essence of what each candidate stands for. Check out the candidates and the flavors below, get involved, donate to and volunteer for their campaigns, and enter for a chance to win one of these specialty pints!

This site is run in collaboration among MoveOn, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield. It is not associated with Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc.

We have our winning flavors!
