Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says Ben & Jerry’s decision to stop selling ice cream in the so-called “Occupied Palestinian Territory” is a mistake. “Ben & Jerry’s decided to brand itself as anti-Israel ice cream,” says Bennett. “This is a moral mistake and I believe it will turn out to be a business mistake as well.”

Wonder what Unilever has to say about that....

Keeping the activism separate was part of the deal

So the people making these political decisions have nothing to lose if they drive the brand into the ground? Seems like a bad deal for Unilever...

Many are not in a position to boycott Ben & Jerry's as it is not CY.

It would be nice to see a boycott B&J movement grow across America (let the Evangelicals lead it for all I care).

Though I would imagine that those smart left-wing Jews made sure that Unilever can't come after them for damages due to their political activism. Maybe corporations will be more careful about this nonsense in the future.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

All those places with "Glatt" in their name shouldn't be carrying non CY items in the first place.

It's the non-Jewish supermarkets where we should see action. And personally I think said action better be a sign exposing B&J for what they are, so that ALL consumers are aware and can make educated choices.

Nothing.

What does glatt have to do with grocery stores?

Glatt is used as a term to convey strict adherence to halacha and that chumros are in place. It is similar to saying "Chassideshe shechita" which is technically meaningless (I mean, do they put a bekitsha and a gartel on the cow before shechting it?). Selling non CY does not jive with the use of the term Glatt in this context.

I'm not going to get into a discussion about this, but regardless B&J makes non dairy ice cream.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

The non-dairy varieties are very hard to find IME, maybe I’m looking in the wrong stores.
