Who are you calling a chunky monkey?! Well, in this case we’ll forgive you, because in an adorable video of everyone’s favorite pig, Esther, is seen chowing down on some delicious Ben & Jerry’s vegan ice cream – and it seems she is just as excited about it as we all are! Ben & Jerry’s released four vegan flavors of its famous ice cream last month and pints are flying off the shelves. Even Esther The Wonder Pig scored a batch of the banana flavored Chunky Monkey. Mmmm.

Esther is a pretty incredible pig. When her dads discovered that Esther wasn’t the mini pig they thought they had adopted, they decided to continue raising her as their pet, just like a cat or dog. Her incredible smarts and personality proved to them that pigs are amazing animals and even inspired them to create an animal sanctuary for animals who have been discarded from the meat industry. Being a spokespig for farmed animals is big job, so we certainly think Esther deserves this delicious snack break.

Hey, Esther, can we have a bit? No? Alright, we’ll get our own.

This is change. If you want change then support it. Boycott the things that aren't vegan. This ice cream was made because a VEGAN organisation FARM encouraged B & J to make it. There were over 28,000 signatures on a petition. FARM encouraged B & J to make this so they will make LESS dairy ice cream. It's also to encourage people who aren't vegan to try something vegan so that they will go vegan themselves. The ingredients are fair trade and non GMO. The ice cream is CERTIFIED VEGAN. Sorry for the block capitals but I've posted this a lot. Unilever is the parent company but the ice cream is VEGAN.

Food for thought. Unilever do do some horrible things, however, pressure is mounting for them to change and they are already trying with some of their products. If no one buys the good/ethical items they'll eventually stop pursuing that line of product and nothing will ever change. Unfortunately these multi-billion dollar companies are not going to disappear so we, the consumer, have to take positive steps towards making them change their minds. Boycotting is a very useful tool but if you know people who will eat Ben and Jerry's (in this case) regardless, why not persuade them to try the vegan option. Usually, finding a compromise for those that have not yet been persuaded by veganism is a far more successful approach to getting them to change than what they may consider is an extremist view.

I agree with you completely. Public demand dictates and it is changing. We must encourage and magnify that voice of change.

I wonder if there's anywhere in the uk that sells this yet. Time to do some research.

I'm surprised you're promoting this, One Green Planet. Unilever is not a company I want to support.

It's still GMO. Not buying. It's just a way to get to vegans' hearts and money.

It is NON GMO and fair trade. It is certified vegan.
