Ben & Jerry's Sues Porn Company Ben & Cherry's for Tarnishing their Image

Ben & Jerry's, the iconic ice cream company, is suing porn company Ben & Cherry's for ruining its "family friendly" reputation, according to the Daily Mail

The X-rated company produces hardcore pornographic DVDs and other goods which knock-off Ben & Jerry's flavor names and images.

Ben & Jerry's filed a trademark lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan describing the porn company as stealing "well-known and iconic" themes from its ice cream products, like the image of a grazing cow, green grass, and large puffy clouds. 

Ben & Cherry's named many of their films after popular ice cream flavors, like "Boston Cream Thigh," "New York Fat & Chunky," and "Peanut Butter D-Cup."

The ice cream company claims the porn films will cause "confusion, mistake, or deception" about Ben & Jerry's trademarks. 

While they criticize the porn company for tarnishing their image, Ben & Jerry's has come out with some suggestively named flavors, like "Schweddy Balls" and "Karamel Sutra." 

The duo have been producing and selling ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet for nearly 35 years, with over 300 stores in the U.S. and 150 in other countries. 

There is currently not a price on the damages being sought in the lawsuit.
