We don’t usually let our whole fan community know every time a Scoop Shop gets a new scooper — unless they’re part of a certain famously dysfunctional family, that is. We’re excited to announce that Buster Bluth, the notoriously over-coddled man-child of Lucille and George Bluth of Arrested Development fame, is joining the Ben & Jerry’s, team for a day! Rumor has it that Lucille pressured Buster to make himself useful and get a job to keep him busy when he’s not at Army, so he's pursuing a temporary internship with the Ben & Jerry's team.
As it turns out, Buster is a much better scooper than he is a military man. He’s already invented a new sundae that has fans chortling with euphoria. “It’s his first decent idea ever!” exclaimed Lucille, tipsily sloshing her martini onto the floor. The Bluth Banana Stand Sundae is an homage to Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana, his family’s comically mismanaged side business. There’s always money in the banana stand, after all.
Buster will be trading his hook for a scoop on Thursday, May 17th at the Burbank, Los Angeles Scoop Shop serving up Bluth Banana Stand Sundaes to fans from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm. If he works hard enough, he could even be promoted to Mr. Manager someday.
Can’t wait to try one? Ask for it at a Scoop Shop near you, or check out the recipe below and DIY it while you binge-watch season 5 of Arrested Development, available May 29th on Netflix.
Juuust The Right Amount Of Fudge
Michael would never approve of too much fudge. What is this, Mardi Gras?
Two Scoops of Nuts
It’s the G.O.B. treatment: double fudge, double nuts.
And A Swirl of Whipped Cream
Every sundae needs whipped cream.
