“I’ve been a fan of Ben & Jerry’s for a long time before even this was happening,” Ziggy Marley told Forbes. “It’s a simple thing, but you don’t know how significant that can be. A child eating an ice cream can see that, ‘Oh, daddy, what’s this thing?’ ‘Oh, it’s a peace sign.’ Then discussions start, explanations, so these things can be more than a simple ice cream.”
