Ben & Jerry's sorry for Irish "Black & Tan" upset
Fri Apr 21, 2:39 PM ET

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ice cream makers Ben & Jerry's have apologized for causing offence by calling a new flavor "Black & Tan" -- the nickname of a notoriously violent British militia that operated during Ireland's war of independence.


Politically correct ice cream? What's next? "Black Cherry"? "Rocky Road"?

The British have a dessert called Spotted Dick, and nobody's knickers are in a twist - except maybe Michael Jackson's.

What's the big deal?
