Ted Nugent, rock musician, avid outdoorsman and defender of gun rights, has
come out in support of "Gun Nut" ice cream, a new flavor unveiled by a
company billing itself as "the conservative alternative to liberal Ben &

Star Spangled Ice Cream Company announced the new partnership yesterday in a

"Star Spangled Ice Cream, the ice cream with a conservative flavor, is proud
that Ted Nugent had endorsed our newest politically incorrect flavor, Gun
Nut," said company Vice President Richard Lessner. "Ted Nugent is a great
defender of the people's right to bear arms. We believe Gun Nut is a perfect
complement to the wild-game recipes in Ted's best-selling cookbook, 'Kill It
and Grill It.'"

Nugent recently made news with the announcement of a new reality TV show,
"Surviving Nugent," where contestants test their endurance while living off
the land on the rocker's rural spread.

"This ice cream is awesome!" Nugent is quoted as saying on the company's
website. "After I kill it and grill it, I plan to finish my feast with a
bowl of Gun Nut!"

The new flavor is described as "coconut almond chip."

According to the statement, the company has partnered with Nugent and Gun
Owners of America in the promotion of Gun Nut. The firm plans to donate $1
from the sale of each quart of Gun Nut to the educational work of the Gun
Owners Foundation Gun Safety Project. Nugent, who heads United Sportsmen of
America, works closely with GOA.

Star Spangled Ice Cream Company sells its product via its website. Besides
Gun Nut, flavors include I Hate the French Vanilla, Nutty Environmentalist,
Iraqi Road and Smaller Govern-mint. Star Spangled donates 10 percent of the
profits from the sale of its original four flavors to charities supporting
the U.S. Armed Forces.

In the statement, the company made a point to note who was not endorsing the
new ice cream flavor: "Among the celebrity non-endorsers of Gun Nut are
Barbra Streisand, Rosie O'Donnell, Alec Baldwin, Al Franken, Al Gore,
Michael Moore and the Dixie Chicks."
