"Love comes in all flavors!"

Your favorite ice cream giant has decided to take on marriage equality in Australia by not selling two scoops of the same flavor.

As of right now, the ban applies to all 26 Ben & Jerry's stores across the land down under as a call to action for the parliament. "Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favorite two scoops," the company said in a statement on its website. "But you find out you are not allowed–Ben & Jerry's has banned two scoops of the same flavor. You'd be furious!"

"But this doesn't even begin to compare to how furious you would be if you were told you were not allowed to marry the person you love," the statement continues. "With over 70 percent of Australians supporting marriage equality, it is time to get on with it."

The company hopes that their move will motivate customers to get in touch with local lawmakers and ask them to legalize same-sex marriage. As part of the campaign, each Ben & Jerry's store has installed postboxes emblazoned with rainbows, urging people to send letters on the spot. (Related: Ben & Jerry's New Summer Flavor Is Here)
