Ben & Jerry's New Summer Flavor Is Here

Today, Ben & Jerry's surprised America with a new ice cream flavor called One Love, and yes, it's inspired by Bob Marley's iconic song. (Related: Man Finds Secret Dairy-Free Ben & Jerry's Flavors)

The flavor was launched in the U.K. last year, but it's now flooding grocery stores and scoop shops stateside too. Rather than just satisfying your sweet tooth, a portion of the proceeds will benefit children in Jamaica through the One Love Youth Camp, run by the Bob Marley Foundation and Partners for Youth Empowerment.

"Bob Marley stood for more than just music – he advocated for social change and inspired millions to think about peace, love, and equality," Ben & Jerry's co-founder Jerry Greenfield said in a press release. "Ben & Jerry's has long strived to champion love and social justice, and by partnering with the Marley family we're happy to play a small role in supporting Marley's vision for a sweeter world."

The enticing flavor is made with a base of banana ice cream, with globs of caramel swirls, graham crackers and, of course, chocolate peace signs. Each pint contains four servings worth 290 calories each with 15 grams of fat and 36 grams of carbohydrates. (Check out these healthy ice cream sandwich recipes that will change summer forever.)

Unfortunately, this flavor will be available for a limited time only so be sure to pick up a pint for $4.99 from the closest freezer aisle near you.
