Ben & Jerry’s May Split From ‘Hazed and Confused’ Flavor After Complaints [Video]
Ben & Jerry's originally created 'Hazed & Confused' ice cream to honor the movie 'Dazed & Confused', but some people are taking offense to the name.
The anger comes after a tragic college hazing incident, and the parents of the students would like Ben & Jerry's to get rid of the title.
Ben and Jerry's contacted the couple and said they were open to changing the name and even doing something to honor their son. They did note that nothing done in the marketing of the flavor has ever been about hazing, it's hazelnut ice cream named after a pop culture movie.
It's a big move from Ben & Jerry's to help the family, even though they really have nothing to do with the tragedy. Many companies could take a note from B&J about how to react to problems. Instead of becoming defensive, maybe a little compassion would fix most of the issues.
On a much lighter note, what do you thin is the best Ben & Jerry's flavor of all time? Let us know in the comments below.
