Eskimo Pie Renamed as Edy's Pie


The Eskimo Pie is being renamed Edy's Pie. Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream made the change after the former named was described as "derogatory." The new name is in honor of Joseph Edy, a founder of the company. What’s the big deal with the word? According to the Alaska Native Language Center, even though the word "Eskimo" is commonly used in Alaska to refer to Inuit and Yupik people – it's now considered derogatory. It’s suggested that native peoples should be referred to as Inuit….so rest easy, America, you will no longer be alienating the Inuit and Yupik people by enjoying that chocolate covered vanilla ice cream treat you’ve likely been eating since you were a kid with a single thought of such nonsense. When does it end?
