A Kentucky ice cream parlor known for naming its treats after people in the news has introduced a flavor named after Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. A Facebook post from Crank & Boom Craft Ice Cream says the company planned to call a limited-time treat Caramel Pecan but decided to change the name to Kamala Pecan after Harris was elected vice president.

Owner Toa Green says the flavor is not a political statement, but a “celebration for women everywhere, especially women of color..." Kamala Pecan is a salted caramel ice cream flavor swirled with candied pecans and salted caramel sauce.
