As a testament to just how deep the well of porn parody goes, the folks at Ben & Jerry’s recently had to file a lawsuit against North Hollywood adult film company Caballero Video because of a new series of adult films with names based on the iconic ice cream company’s flavors. The brass at Caballero, AKA Rodax Distributors Inc., agreed to a settlement with Ben & Jerry’s and agreed to not release any films under the previously planned and admittedly delicious “Ben & Cherry’s” titles.
According to the Chicago Tribune, this was all about protecting the brand name and stopping someone from besmirching a wholesome company’s fine image.

Ben & Jerry’s had said that Caballero didn’t have permission to reference Ben & Jerry’s or its trademarked ice cream flavors, which have names that the filmmakers evidently found to be a creative goldmine.
Ben & Jerry’s flavor names include “Banana Split,” “Cherry Garcia” and “Everything But the…” — all of which became fodder for X-rated fare in Caballero’s hands. Caballero also used packaging that resembled Ben & Jerry’s well-known clouds and cows imagery.
