Jimmy Fallon gets his own Ben & Jerry's flavor

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Sounds exactly like Americone Dream, except it's fudge-covered potato chips instead of chocolate-covered waffle cone pieces.
