‘Eskimo Pie’ Has a New Name! Will Now Be Called ‘Edy’s Pie”

The “Eskimo Pie” ice cream bars you’ve come to know and love now have a new name.

They’ll now be known as “Edy’s Pie”.

This is the latest brand to change its name because of racist connotations.

“We are committed to being a part of the solution on racial equality, and recognize the term is inappropriate. This move is part of a larger review to ensure our company and brands reflect our people values.” the company said in a statement to the New York Times.

The caricature of an Artic child has also been removed.

The new name will reflect and honor the creator of the treat, Joseph Edy and can be seen in stores as early as next year.

What do you think of the name change?
