Naperville Congressional candidate Lauren Underwood to get ice cream made in her honor by Ben and Jerry

Naperville Democrat Lauren Underwood is one of seven Congressional candidates being backed by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield — co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream — and for whom they will be naming an ice cream flavor for this fall.

“We wanted to do our part to check President Trump’s unrestrained power and send progressive champions to Congress who will really fight for working people and not just blow smoke,” Cohen said in a news release. “To guys like us, that means cranking up the old ice cream freezer.”

The effort between Cohen, Greenfield and the progressive organization MoveOn is being called Ben and Jerry (the people, not the corporation) Take Back Congress, Flavor by Flavor.

Underwood, a Naperville resident, is challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren in the 14th Congressional District in the November election, and is the only Illinois candidate chosen for an ice cream flavor.
