It's time for Bernie's Yearning!

Yes, that's actually the name of an ice cream the folks at Ben & Jerry's made in honor of their guy, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Sanders, currently a Senator from Vermont — where B&J is located — is a political favorite of Ben Cohen, who announced he had created the flavor in solidarity with the politician's campaign for the Democratic seat for president.

Cohen revealed the flavor in an announcement on Monday:

"Jerry and I have been constituents of Bernie Sanders for the last 30 years. We've seen him in action and we believe in him. Nothing is so unstoppable as a flavor whose time has finally come."

So what exactly is Bernie's Yearning, anyways?!

Well, appropriately enough for the real Senator's real campaign, it's 99% mint with a 1% layer of chocolate on top! Cohen described the ice cream in detail:

"The chocolate disc represents the huge majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1 percent since the end of the recession. Beneath it, the rest of us. Dig in, and share with your fellow Americans."

Now, don't get too excited about this — at the present time, there are no plans for mass distribution, since Cohen has only made about 40 pints of the stuff in his kitchen, and the flavor has yet to be officially associated with their company, Ben and Jerry's Homemade, Inc.

But you can still try some!

Cohen donated 25 pints to Sanders' campaign, which will be giving them away in a contest.
