Ben & Jerry’s Launches ‘SNL’ Themed Ice Cream Flavors

After the success of Ben & Jerry’s ‘Saturday Night Live’-inspired Schweddy Balls ice cream back in 2011, they’ve decided to premiere two new flavors honoring the popular sketch comedy series just in time for the company’s 40th anniversary.

The Vermont-based dessert company posted a message on Twitter announcing the two new flavors.

“Live from Ben & Jerry’s… it’s @nbcsnl Batches! Stay tuned all year as our scoop shops reveal sketch-inspired flavors,” they wrote, promising that the current two flavors will not be the last.

The two new flavors premiered include Lazy Sunday, based upon the famous Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell skit, and Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch, referencing the hilarious character created by Kristen Wiig.

Lazy Sunday is a vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl, while Gilly’s has a chocolate and sweet cream ice cream base with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and a marshmallow swirl.

Sadly, the ‘SNL’ flavors are not being sold in pint-sized packages in grocery stores, and will only be made available at the Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops.
