Lick Your City. What Flavor Is It?

In 2002, Craig David asked the world "What's your flava? Tell me what's you flava (aaah)." Now Ben & Jerry's is performing similar research, asking the question in a less smooth and infinitely more confusing way.

The New York Daily News reports that the ice cream company has just launched a new "City Churned" campaign, which will culminate in the creation of city-specific flavors for New York, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington D.C.

Ben & Jerry's 'Liz Lemon' Flavor Doesn't Sound Like Something Liz Lemon Would Ever Eat

Tina Fey's Liz Lemon abides by a diet that is notoriously unhealthy, and often on the outer boundaries of "food."

People are always getting upset about things and boycotting products and usually it's very dumb. There are two cases in point today: First, a conservative group wants Ben & Jerry's limited-edition "Schweddy Balls" ice cream boycotted, and then Glenn Beck is against revolutionary jeans.

Tomorrow is Election Day, the famous American Holiday in which people are not given a day off of work but are still expected to wait in lengthy lines outside elementary schools during business hours in order to have their provisional ballots thrown away or watch their electronic voting machines helpfully select the Constitution Party candidate. Yes, voting is hard, and seldom worth it. Which is why civic-minded companies are giving people prizes for voting! A voter an receive a free cup of coffee from Starbucks, a free donut from Krispy Kreme, and free ice cream from Ben & Jerry's if they show up and tell them they voted. It's a great, fun way to boost turnout, and it's probably totally illegal! The laws do vary from state to state, but for elections to federal office, our Congress is clear:
