The world needs a little love today! Ben & Jerry’s celebrated legendary singer Bob Marley’s legacy with the One Love ice cream. “One love, one heart…” was Bob Marley’s moto in his call for global compassion, and therefore the perfect name for the Ben & Jerry’s latest flavor, One Love. So cute! I can’t wait to try this flavor I may have to stalk it somewhere.A portion of the proceeds from each One Love pint sold will benefit Jamaica’s One Love Youth Camp, a program run by The Bob Marley Foundation and Partners for Youth Empowerment.
Bob Marley’s son, Ziggy Marley said, “The One Love Youth Camp positively affects youth in Jamaica, providing social and interpersonal tools they can use throughout life. The youth are our future and we are thankful for our partnership with Partners for Youth Empowerment and Ben & Jerry’s.”
After the flavor enjoyed tremendous success in the United Kingdom last year, One Love is now making a splash on this side of the pond by sharing its mission-driven deliciousness with fans in the U.S. One Love is an enchanting harmony of banana ice cream, caramel and cookie swirls, and chocolatey peace signs.
The Marley-inspired flavor and partnership was celebrated May 22nd when Ziggy Marley, musician and eldest son of Bob Marley, hosted performances by Aaron Nigel Smith and others at an invitation-only party at the iconic Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip. The kickoff was followed immediately by the first official listening party of Bob Marley’s reimagined Exodus 40 album – produced by Ziggy and reissued for its 40th anniversary.
