Here at Ben & Jerry’s we’re big fans of Saturday Night Live. (Remember our first SNL-inspired partnership?) And after 40 years of iconic and entertaining SNL sketches, we’re celebrating the only way we know how; with ice cream of course!
Our Flavor Gurus have created a series of SNL-inspired flavors to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the famous television series. The first two of the four flavors, Lazy Sunday and Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch have hit our Scoop Shops nationwide.
Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch is a combination of chocolate & sweet cream ice creams, with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds & a marshmallow swirl as frantic and mischievous as Gilly herself.
The Lazy Sunday sketch, which features the sincere love of cupcakes portrayed by actors Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell inspired our Flavor Gurus to create a vanilla cake batter ice cream base with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces & a chocolate frosting swirl for the latest crazy concoction.
What other two sketches were spectacular enough to be turned into an ice cream flavor? You’ll have to follow along as we continue a year-long celebration of SNL’s 40th Anniversary to find out! Stay tuned!
