A Ben & Jerry's co-founder is sweetening up his support for Sen. Bernie SandersBernie SandersDemocrats redefine center as theirs collapses Speculation swirls around whether Bloomberg will make Las Vegas debate stage Pelosi: 'I'm not counting Joe Biden out' MORE’s (I-Vt.) White House bid with a new limited-edition ice cream flavor. 

Ben Cohen, who co-founded the famed ice cream brand, announced Friday the creation of “Bernie's Back," following a similar release during the last Democratic presidential primary.

The hot cinnamon ice cream includes "one very large chocolate disc on top and a (very stiff) butter toffee backbone going down the middle," according to Sanders’s campaign website.


"The chocolate disc represents all the wealth that has risen to the top 1 percent" while the "backbone represents Bernie's steadfast determination to un-rig our economy." The hot cinnamon flavor is "our political revolution holding politicians' feet to the fire to make America work for working people of all races and genders."

A pint bearing Sanders's smiling image features the message, "Open joyfully. Political revolution inside."

It's not the first time that Cohen, 68, has given Sanders’s presidential ambitions a frozen dessert boost. In 2016, Cohen debuted another ice cream flavor, "Bernie's Yearning," a mint concoction that also included a chocolate disc.

Neither the 2016 or latest Sanders flavor is an official Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

A contest is being held to dole out the limited-edition 40 pints of ice cream, each autographed by Cohen, who has also joined Sanders on the campaign trail.

"Before Bernie, I used to be the most famous guy in Vermont!" Cohen joked at a campaign stop in Iowa in May. "I am just so happy to give that title over to Bernie."

"Ice cream is good," he continued. "But a president of the United States who truly stands for justice in all its flavors? That is euphoric!"
