wow — stephen colbert has a new ben & jerry’s ice cream flavor named after him. that’s something, to get a ben & jerry’s flavor named after you while you’re still alive!
this quote from colbert, in response to ben & jerry’s previous flavors named after Jerry Garcia, Wavy Gravy and the band Phish, cracked me up:
“I’m not afraid to say it. Dessert has a well-known liberal agenda,” Colbert said in a statement. “What I hope to do with this ice cream is bring some balance back to the freezer case.”
as i type this, i just finished a concoction of heath bar non-fat frozen yogurt, with heath bar bits, butterfinger crumbles, and a drizzle of carmel. maybe “marko’s mighty toffee crunch” could be ben & jerry’s next flavor? maybe not.
