That Ben & Jerry’s is concerned with what happens outside the walls is done, it is already long no longer a secret. The ijsfabrikant is committed, for example, a period of time in equality of marriage and the fairtrade trade, and thus also against the global warming of the climate. To re-focus attention on that final issue, the manufacturer has now compiled a list of endangered flavors of ice cream.

These include the classics, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Half Baked, New York Super Fudge Chunk, Chunky Monkey and Fairly Nuts. The cause of their endangered status? Both the production of cocoa as that of notes by the global warming a big sting. Researchers argue that the cacao production in 2050 by up to 50 % could drop, but also walnuts would be the difficult to get when the temperature rises.

Finally, it calls the producer also coffee as endangered ingredient, but we were in Belgium (in the area of Ben & Jerry’s anyway) hardly notice the difference: there is no coffee flavor.
