Ben & Jerry's Unveils New Celebrity Flavor for Jimmy Fallon — Again!
Just as we were coming off our sugar highs from Ben & Jerry’s new Wayne’s World-inspired ice cream, we get another rush: There’s a new new celebrity flavor.
The Vermont ice cream company announced Wednesday morning that the latest star to be featured on its pints is Jimmy Fallon — again.
The late-night host’s new flavor is The Tonight Dough Starring Jimmy Fallon, which sounds like one of the best things to ever be created. Chocolate and caramel ice creams are combined with chocolate chip cookie dough, peanut butter cookie dough and a crunchy chocolate cookie swirl. The release of the flavor coincides with the one year anniversary of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
Late Night Snack, the flavor released during his stint as host of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, was phased out in 2013 when Fallon took the reins for The Tonight Show. It included vanilla ice cream flecked with salted caramel swirls and fudge-covered potato chip clusters.
You can buy The Tonight Dough by the pint in supermarkets for $4.89 or at Scoop Shops nationwide — plus, the money is going to a good cause. All of Fallon’s proceeds from sales will be donated to SeriousFun Children’s Network.
“I love working with Ben & Jerry’s. And I’m not over-hyping; I’m not overselling — we’ve made the best ice cream ever created,” Fallon said in a statement. “It’s so insanely good and I’m just happy to be associated with it. And the proceeds go to a great charity.”
Ben & Jerry’s is known for dabbling in star-studded flavors, including a collection of Saturday Night Live flavors, a Bob Marley-inspired pint in the U.K., a Scotchy Scotch Scotch Anchorman variety and a Tina Fey carton based on her 30 Rock character, Liz Lemon.
We hope the next flavor to come out of that Vermont factory will be one inspired by Amy Poehler’s sugar-loving Parks and Recreation character, Leslie Knope — waffle bits and whipped cream, anyone?!
