Kaep’s latest collaborative effort is with vaunted ice cream giant Ben & Jerry’s, which has developed a unique vegan, nondairy flavor called “Colin Kaepernick’s Change The Whirled.” Set to launch in 2021, the permanent flavor boasts a caramel, sunflower butter base with fudge chips, graham cracker swirls, chocolate cookie swirls and an image of the former NFL All-Pro and San Francisco 49er’s quarterback, complete with his signature Afro.
I’ve teamed up with @BenAndJerrys to serve up joy on the journey to justice!
Today, we’re excited to introduce Change the Whirled, a new non-dairy flavor that hits shelves in early-2021!

Proceeds from flavor will be disseminated to Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp, which works to “advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.”
