Here's one more reason I love Ben & Jerry's. Not only do they make great ice cream, but they have a very well developed sense of social justice. They just renamed their Chubby Hubby ice cream "Hubby Hubby". Here's the explanation from the email I received this evening.

In partnership with Freedom to Marry we are gathered here to celebrate Vermont and all the other great states where loving couples of all kinds are free to marry legally.

We have ceremoniously dubbed our iconic flavor, Chubby Hubby to Hubby Hubby in support, and to raise awareness of the importance of marriage equality.

Great stuff. I'll definitely buy a pint of Hubby Hubby next time I'm in the store. And maybe send a few pints off to California.

There's more information on Ben & Jerry's Web site.
