Ice cream and porno movies might have as much in common as soap and opera. But American ice cream giant Ben & Jerry’s has sued a maker of pornographic DVDs for allegedly infringing the names of its flavors with a movie series called "Ben & Cherry's."

­Ben & Jerry's, a subsidiary of Unilever NV, has filed a complaint against a California-based company that makes and sells adult movies and products.

It claims Rodax Distributors Inc has changed some of Ben & Jerry's best-known ice cream flavors into titles for its movies, Reuters reported. 

As a result, "Boston Cream Pie" became "Boston Cream Thighs," "Chocolate Fudge Brownie" was changed to "Chocolate Fudge Babes," and "Peanut Butter Cup" became "Peanut Butter D-Cups," the lawsuit filed in Manhattan Federal Court said.

­On top of this, according to the lawsuit, the DVD jackets are also mimicking the packaging of Ben & Jerry's trademark ice cream products.

Apart from seeking monetary damages, Ben & Jerry's is urging the court to stop Rodax from making or selling movies that infringe its trademarks.

Earlier this year Ben & Jerry's announced plans to change the name of one of its ice cream flavors in the UK to pay tribute and support equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. Oh! My! Apple Pie! is set to become Apple-y Ever After while tubs will feature a gay couple atop a wedding cake decorated with rainbows.
