    Ben & Jerry’s replaces fortune cookies in ‘Lin-Sanity’ flavor after controversy

    link

    Ben & Jerry's will take fortune cookies out of its new Jeremy Lin-inspired ice cream flavor after hearing complaints that the ingredient was racist.
    This is just 'linsane'.

    Jeremy Lin is an American of Taiwanese/Chinese descent from San Francisco. Fortune cookies were *GASP* invented in San Francisco by *GASP* Americans of Chinese descent.

    Cut this PC crap already!!! This is getting stupid. First, someone gets fired for the common phrase 'Chink in the Armor' and now this. America has become too PC for its own good.

    On the record, I would eat an ice cream flavor called "Transubstantiation" where upon we receive chunks of wafers of similar taste to those given upon communion.

    Pure awesomeness. Duh.



    Are there links to packaging?

    Because if it had a funny cone hat man with a basketball munching a fortune cookie they may have had quite a reasonable case.



    Was there a watermelon Koolaid Krunch for Kobe bryant?

    Good lord.


    Everytime I eat at a Chinese place they give me fortune cookies along with my bill. Are they being racist against themselves?

    BTW, I LOVE to eat my fortune cookie with a little ice cream as my dessert...

    I haven't a clue, I was never nosy enough to look at their table and see.

    Of course, most of the Asians in my area are either Laotian, Hmong/Other Vietnamese or Korean, rather than actually Chinese.
