Why You Can't Order Two Of The Same Scoop At Ben & Jerry's

If you go into a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream store, you may notice something a little different.

“Two scoops of chocolate chip cookie dough, thanks,” you might say.

And you’d be told that wasn’t possible.

Why might you ask?

Well, it’s all to do with a new initiative they’re running, where they’re stopping the sale of two identical ice cream scoops until gay marriage is legalised in Australia.


The American company, whose motto is 'peace and love' announced the bid on Wednesday.

'Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favourite two scoops of Cookie Dough in a waffle cone,' the company wrote on their website.

'But you find out you are not allowed… you'd be furious!

'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.

'So we are banning two scoops of the same flavour and encouraging our fans to contact their MPs to tell them that the time has come- make same sex marriage legal! Love comes in all flavours!'

Onya, Ben and Jerry’s!
