October 10th, 2011 109 comments



As I posted earlier today,  not unsurprisingly, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream has offered their corporate backing to the Wall Street Protests.   When we first learned of this, the Spew Crew knew that we had the makings of a delicious contest! 

So here goes!

Come up with a name for a new Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavor to honor the Wall Street slugs….. er…. protesters!  Winner gets a Morning Spew post in their honor with their winning flavor noted AND some other prize.  We are not sure what that other prize is, yet, but we are good for it!

So don’t be shy!  Put your Occupy Wall Street Flavor entries in the comments section!  You can thumb up your favorites, but the Spew Crew’s own Fester Boyle will judge the contest.

Contest will run until 10:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thursday!
