New Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Is Launching In Australia And Comes With A Big Chunk Of Chocolate

Australia is set to receive a delicious and mouth-watering new ice cream from Ben & Jerry's that will figuratively blow you away.

The Topped series will be the ice cream that you already know and love, aka Salted Caramel Brownie and Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough, but with a twist.

When you pop off the lid on these bad boys, you'll be met with a chunky serving of chocolate that you can dive your spoon straight into.

Most people would agree that chocolate in ice cream will make it harder that a rock to chew, but this topping will be malleable enough for you to dig into until your heart's content.

It comes hot off the back of Ben & Jerry's exclusively Australian ice cream launch that aims to alert politicians about the use of fossil fuels.

Most of the time ice cream will only send a message to your waistline, but the Unfudge Our Future flavour hopes to direct attention to the Coalition's use of fossil fuels.

The flavour consists of 'chocolate and peanut butter non-dairy ice cream, fudge brownies and peanut butter cookie dough'.

The tub, which can be bought for $15 each, has a large message written on the side saying: "Dear Scott Morrison, make fossil fuels history!"

There have been personalised tubs made for treasurer Josh Frydenberg and energy minister Angus Taylor, asking each person to 'invest in a fast and fair transition to 100% renewables'.

Ben & Jerry's Impact & Activism Manager Steph Curley said: "Whilst climate change affects us all, it doesn't affect us all equally. Many of our communities are at an increased risk of a warming planet - and we have a responsibility to advocate for a new future.

"These are critical decisions that will impact Australia and our planet for generations to come. We've seen it's possible to redesign the way we live, and with enough people power - we can call on governments to rebuild for a cleaner, resilient and fairer future for everyone."

Ben & Jerry's has teamed up with 350.org Australia and the Climate Council to launch the special flavour. A portion of the sales generated from the ice cream will go towards 350.org Australia.

The company has also launched an information section on its website to help educate people about the environment and it gives the power to send an email to Morrison, Frydenberg and Taylor to voice your concerns.

The three groups are calling on the Australian government to adopt a 'science-led approach to climate change', get rid of fossil fuels and ramp up the production and use of renewable energy.

They hope these efforts will prepare people in rural, regional coastal communities for the future.
