The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

15 April 2007

Is this just fantasy?

Apparently this is the real life, in Britain anyway:

Fairtrade ice-cream pioneers Ben & Jerry's have just brought out a new flavour, the brilliantly named Bohemian Raspberry. This mouth-watering new flavour is a vanilla based ice-cream with fudge brownie and raspberry swirls, and the name's closeness to a certain Queen song is no coincidence.

Each time you purchase a tub you'll be making a donation to the Mercury Phoenix Trust, which is dedicated to fighting AIDS worldwide.

No word on whether Bohemian Raspberry will be offered Stateside.

I hate Ben & Jerrys. It gives me gas.

Which I guess segues into your Jaguar thing (see above) Plus, it always reminds me of those guys who have the car show on NPR who I don't think are funny at all.

Ben & Jerry's does come up with the greatest product names.
