Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick made an interesting announcement this Thursday that has nothing to do with football. Believe it or not, he’s teaming up with Ben & Jerry’s to create his own ice cream flavor.
No athlete has raised more awareness regarding social injustice than Kaepernick over the past few years. Once again, he’s using his latest opportunity to help support this cause.
“I’ve teamed up with Ben & Jerry’s to serve up joy on the journey to justice,” Kaepernick wrote. “Today, we’re excited to introduce Change the Whirled, a new non-dairy flavor that hits shelves in early-2021! 100% of my proceeds will go to the Know Your Rights Camp with matching support from Ben & Jerry’s.”
Kaepernick’s ice cream flavor, Change the Whirled, will hit shelves in early 2021. The description for this flavor says caramel with fudge chips, graham cracker swirls and chocolate cookies.
