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.
