Vermont Ice cream maker and gay rights champion Ben & Jerry's is celebrating the historic Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage throughout the U.S. by renaming one of its core ice cream flavors, chocolate chip cookie dough, to "I dough, I dough."

"Across the country and around the globe, the movement for marriage equality is on an unstoppable roll, generating history-making victories, game-changing wins and growing waves of public support for legalizing same-sex marriage everywhere," Ben & Jerry's said in a press release.

The package will be changed to show two top hat-bearing cows with their tails linked in the shape of a heart and wedding bands interlocked.

The flavor will be featured throughout the summer at select stores and in its scoop shops nationwide. Proceeds from the ice cream sales will go to the Human Rights Campaign, a nonprofit for LGBTQ rights.
