Taste the Lin-Sanity

You know Jeremy Lin? He is an Asian American currently playing for NBA club, New York Knicks.

Jeremy Lin

Ben & Jerry's created a vanilla-flavored frozen yogurt in honor of Lin named "Taste the Lin-Sanity". It contained lychee honey swirls and 'fortune cookie' pieces.

Before and after

Many people perceived fortune cookie was racist where the ingredient serving as an obvious nod to Lin's heritage.

Ended up, Ben & Jerry's replaced the fortune cookies with waffle cookies. The reason given is "a couple of [pints] got returned because the cookies got so soggy."

To me, it's just a type of ingredients that may related to Chinese. Even ice cream can be a racism issue. lol

I want to taste the fortune cookie ice cream!
