According to Cohen's website dedicated to "Bernie's Yearning", the new flavor isn't an official Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

"Jerry and I have been constituents of Bernie Sanders for the last 30 years," Cohen said of the longtime Vermont senator.

"We've seen him and we believe him," he added. "When we're out speaking on his behalf people always ask if there's a Ben and Jerry's flavor.

"There's not," Cohen said. "But if I were going to come up with one, this is what it would be."

Bernie's Yearning website describes the creation as regular mint ice cream with a thick layer of chocolate on top.

"The chocolate disc represents the huge majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1 percent since the end of the recession," the packaging states. "Beneath it, the rest of us.

Cohen has created only 40 pints of the ice cream, and 25 were sent to Sanders's campaign.
