Laverne Cox Gets Ice Cream Flavor Named In Her Honor


Laverne Cox is the first openly transgender person to have been nominated for an Emmy, recently had a Madame Tussaud’s wax figure made in her likeness and now she has her very own ice cream flavor. Three Twins Ice Cream, a California-based, organic ice cream company, created limited edition flavors to celebrate Pride Month, and one of them was inspired by the Orange is the New Black actress. The new flavor is called “Laverne Cox’s Chocolate Orange is the New Black” and is described as a “chocolate orange confetti.”

One of the founders of Three Twins, Neil Gottlieb, is an LGBT activist and makes special flavors each year for Pride. According to SF Weekly, other offerings include the Stonewall Riots-inspired “Maple Stonewall-Nut” and “Harvey Milk and Honey.” Congrats on the sweet tribute, Laverne!
