In its latest collaboration, a Des Moines-based coffee and tea wholesaler meets a progressive, national ice cream company and a piece of legislation in the House of Representatives. 

Blk & Bold is partnering with Ben & Jerry’s on a cold brew coffee ice cream with marshmallow swirls and fudge brownies. The limited edition flavor called Change is Brewing is being used to attract support for the People’s Response Act, a bill Rep. Cori Bush, D-Missouri, introduced to the House of Representatives in June. 

The flavor was revealed Monday at an event in Washington D.C., according to The Hill, where Bush said the bill would establish a division within the Department of Health & Human Services for a “health-centered approach” to public safety.
