Lexington is now home to Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris' namesake ice cream.

Crank & Boom Craft Ice Cream is now selling "Kamala Pecan" playing off the classic flavor caramel pecan. Shop owner Toa Green says the reason she chose to honor the Vice President-Elect was because the two of them have a lot in common such as being Asian Americans who are daughters of immigrants and are also in interracial marriages.

Toa Green explains "When she was elected, I, along with, I'm sure, many other people in this country, felt seen, felt excited to have somebody that looked like us to have a voice in a place where someone like us had never had a voice, previously."

Crank & Boom is donating $2 of every pre-order of Kamala Pecan to singles mothers in need.
