Jimmy Fallon found a cool way to mark the second anniversary of "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon": with a Ben & Jerry's ice cream named in its honor.
Fallon, Ben Greenfield and Jerry Cohen announced on the funnyman's show last night that the treat will be called Late Night Snack— vanilla bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl and fudge-covered potato chip clusters— and will soon be making its way into Ben & Jerry's scoop shops.
The idea for the ice cream came about last summer when Ben & Jerry's requested a meeting with Fallon after seeing him perform a tribute to the dairy duo with his faux band Ladysmith Snack Mambazo.
"They set up ice cream in our conference room, started talking, and asked if we wanted to do our own flavor," says Fallon. "We said, 'Are you kidding?! That's living the dream!'"
Fallon isn't the only famous face to get his own flavor: Stephen Colbert (Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream), Elton John (Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road), Jerry Garcia (Cherry Garcia), and rockers Phish (Phish Food) have also been added to the Ben & Jerry's roster.
JUST DO IT.
I can't wait for the Rush Limbuagh flavor: its really rich vanilla with no nuts.
what about the flavor attributed to Dave Mathews Band?
F-f-f-f-f-f welcome to darkneSs
I will have to give it a try.
This is a dishonor to Stephen Colbert. When has Jimmy Fallon ever been entertaining? Better yet when is his 15 minutes of fame going to be over? Lorne Michaels should be regretting everyday for giving this guy a shot. Also I think the cartoon characters Ace and Gary were based on Fallon's antics.
he's laughing all the way to the bank
do a little research. Ace and Gary premiered in 2006 and Jimmy Fallon didn't start as a featured cast member until 1999. Do better.
OH YEAH! Chips and ice cream-GOOD STUFF! Salty caramel-EVEN BETTER! Having Jimmy Fallon for a late night snack-HECK YEAH! This ice cream is gonna be fabulous!
Sounds good to me, just like peanut butter, bananas an lays potato chips, on white bread ( sandwich) mmmmm
Oh, Jimmy Fallon is all about the fudge, I guarantee it.
Then you'll love the new Scooby-Doo flavor: Peanut Butter Pizza with Sardines and Jalapenos! I think the Elton John flavor was called PPacked Fudge".
I saw Jimmy's impression of Charley Sheen last night on his show, it was the funniest thing I ever saw. You deserve your own flavor after that.
Not 4 me thanks sounds nasty
Salty carmel? Fudge covered potato chips? I'm not picky, but that just sounds unappetizing...
Because you obviously have no taste. Salty and sweet is delicious.
The guy is hilarious... TAXI with queen Latifah is hilarious http://usedbooks4cash.blogspot.com/
Yum...needs to be sold in retail stores.This is the way I eat m ine anyway!!
I saw it earlier this week in Martins grocery store. (Richmond VA)
Sounds exactly like Americone Dream, except it's fudge-covered potato chips instead of chocolate-covered waffle cone pieces.
Yeah because waffle cones and potato chips are so similar.
Ice cream with chips in it? Fail.
why is he even on tv? he is not funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It sounds like it could be good...I like dipping potato chips in chocolate pudding...interesting...
