Ben and Jerry’s has joined forces with Our Islands Our Home to launch a new limited-edition non-dairy flavour, This Is Our Whirled, in solidarity with Torres Strait Islanders who are on the frontlines of the climate crisis.
Our Islands Our Home, a campaign spearheaded by Traditional Owners of the Torres Strait, urges the new Federal government to take stronger climate action. As part of this campaign, in September 2022, eight Torres Strait Islanders won a historic international legal case, with the United Nations Human Rights Committee ruling that the Australian Government violated Torres Strait Islanders’ human rights by failing to act on climate change.
Ben & Jerry’s is calling on all Australians to sign the petition, which calls for stronger climate action and climate justice for Torres Strait Islanders facing the impacts of the climate crisis. In return, you could receive a free pint of the new flavour.
Simply walk into participating Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops Australia-wide on Friday, October 14, between 5 pm and 9 pm and present a screenshot of the signed petition to receive a free pint of This Is Our Whirled limited-edition flavour.
If you’re wondering what the flavour is, it’s a non-dairy, vegan dessert made with sunflower butter and packed with chocolate chip cookies, chocolate sandwich cookies and chocolate cookie swirls and is available exclusively at Woolworths, Metcash and B&Js scoop stores in Australia.
Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.
Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.
You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
