Lloyd Bishop/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank(LONDON) — A longtime advocate for equal rights, Ben & Jerry’s UK has re-named its apple pie flavor “Apple-y Ever After” in support of gay marriage.  This week, the UK government is set to decide whether to make gay marriage legal.

Available in select stores in the UK, the limited-edition carton features two men atop a rainbow-detailed white cake.  The flavor features apple pie ice cream with apple chunks and pieces of pie crust.

This isn’t the first time Ben & Jerry’s has promoted marriage equality.  In 2009, the brand renamed the flavor “Chubby Hubby” to “Hubby Hubby” in response to gay marriage legislation in Vermont.
