The company is paying homage to reggae icon Bob Marley with One Love, a banana-flavored ice cream with graham cracker swirls and fudge peace signs.

“I’ve been a fan of Ben & Jerry’s for a long time before even this was happening,” Marley told Forbes. “It’s a simple thing, but you don’t know how significant that can be. A child eating an ice cream can see that, “Oh, daddy, what’s this thing?” “Oh, it’s a peace sign.” Then discussions start, explanations, so these things can be more than a simple ice cream.”

The limited edition flavor won’t only satisfy your taste buds, it will also benefit one of the legend’s foundations. Proceeds will go towards the Bob Marley One Love Youth Camp
