An AmeriCone Dream for John Edwards?

This afternoon, Sen. John Edwards officially accepted the endorsement of "Caucus for Priorities," a 10,000-member political group focused on reworking the budget and reducing military spending.

Ben Cohen is the founder of the group and he's probably better known to most by his product which graces the shelves of your grocer's freezer section. He puts the "Ben" in Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

Back in March B&J's unvieled a new flavor of ice cream for Comedy Central pundit and shortlived presidential candidate Stephen Colbert called "AmeriCone Dream," which top-secret recipe includes "fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl."

I asked Mr. Cohen after today's press conference when his ice cream company would be announcing Sen. Edwards' flavor - since he's a real candidate and all.

He says there is no plan yet, but if he were to have his own B&J's flavor it would surely not be "fluffy," perhaps something more solid like "Captain Courageous Crunch".

No word yet on any deal in the works with Quaker Oats.
