John Lennon gets his own Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

Well folks I’ve seen it all now.  First, we had John Lennon Converse sneakers, but now there’s this.   I guess the folks over at Ben & Jerry’s are taking John’s comments about selling peace like a product to heart.  They are imagining peace through an ice cream flavor.  We all scream for ice cream. 

I like the idea of marketing peace through ice cream.  It makes the world a better place.  I think John would agree.  It doesn’t hurt that his likeness is on this as well. 

I imagine Yoko screaming for ice cream in the commercial spot for the yummy dessert.  The TV commercial would be outstanding.

Here’s a question to you dear readers. 

  • What combination of flavors would you include in the Ben & Jerry’s Imagine Peace Ice Cream?  It’s easy if you try. Let us know your ideas in the comments below. 

Here’s what we’ve read.

When Ben & Jerry’s wanted to talk about peace, we couldn’t think of a better person to exemplify the message than John Lennon. Through his art and lyrics he imagined a world without war and asked us all to ‘Give Peace a Chance’. We hope this whirly mixture of toffee cookies and fudge peace signs enlightens your bellies and souls and makes you ask what you can do to promote peace in your lives.

  1. Walking on thin ice cream…funny…the thought of Yoko screaming “Ice! Ice! Ice! Ice scream!”

  2. my dad is ceo of a grocery store, and he’s known about this for a few months. because i love john so much, ben and jerry’s sent the store a prototype of the ice-cream, and i got to eat it. let me tell you, it was delicious.

  3. What a delightful idea to have an ice cream created for John and peace! Sounds delicious too!

  4. What a lovely idea. A great way to promote peace and have your ice cream, too! The concept is very Yokoesque.

  5. I wonder if any profits got any Peace causes. I know there has been a lot of involvement with Amnesty International over the recent years. I can’t wait to try some…caramel, sweet cream & toffee’s are some of very favorite sweet flavors…along with Chocolate of course. The only improvement I could ask for is to have some how involved my very favorite sweet eatable…Maple Cream!!! It’s like a thick spread made by cooking the maple sap that usually becomes syrup or candy (the cream is inbetween the two ) for certain time at a certain temp…don’t know the details, but the result is Maple Creamlicious! Blessings!!

  6. We need a companion ice cream … Instant Caramel ???

  7. I think it’s wonderful that Yoko is contributing to obesity and world peace.

  8. umm…does no-one else consider this a disgusting little venture into profit gaining that degrades the icon being used to sell it?
    Does no one else think that selling THE song calling for monetary neutrality as an expensive western ice cream is embarrassing to the writer and all those who tried in some way to live by its’ virtues?
    This seems to me to be the quick route to kill the legend of Lennon.

  9. This is an amazing Idea. I love Ben and Jerry’s and I love John, so what could be better.
    now, what about, Butterscotch on the Run?

  10. All You Need is Fudge
    Why Don’t We Do It in the Rocky Road?
    Yellow Tangerine
    Marshmallow, Goodbye
    Traveling Raspberry
    Strawberry Fields Forever (duh)
    Mango Starr
    The Long and Rocky Road

  11. Oh, come off it Jose. Ben & Jerry are a couple of hippies who founded an ice cream company. Strange, but true. They’ve had flavors named after other people (Cherry Garcia, anyone?). Why not John?

  12. I am a huge fan of John’s but I think it’s odd that of all the products to put his name on they chose ice cream, considering the fact that John was a macrobiotic vegetarian. He didn’t eat eggs or dairy and this product contains both.

  13. IMAGINE WHIRLED PEACE ??? you gotta be kidding.


  14. I’ll buy it. And I will save the empty cartons and sell them at Beatlefest for some outrageous amount. 🙂

  15. lol I love he song and lennon, and the icecream.

  16. Well, maybe Lennon wasn’t able to “Give Peace a Chance” but at least he had an ice cream named after him.

  17. I think you should do dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate or caramel swirls with fudge peace signs.

  18. […] fan left a tub of Ben and Jerry’s Imagine Whirled Peace, a chocolate-vanilla swirl ice-cream with chocolate peace signs, inspired by the artist.  In […]

  19. Is there a non-corn syrup version?
