After one of Ben & Jerry’s co-founders revealed an ice cream flavor just for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Stephen Colbert wanted the rest of the 2016 candidates to feel the (freezer) Bern.

Fresh off making promposals for Sanders and assigning Simon and Garfunkel songs to all the other presidential candidates, Colbert is now getting into the churning business. If Sanders gets a limited-edition ice cream flavor, argues Colbert, so should everyone else due to what he calls “ice cream equal time rule.”

Some names puns serve better than others (such as “Caramel Fiorina”), but we do know we’d have every one of those flavors.
