Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, Americone Dream 1 pt
Vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl. Ben & Jerry's churned up this euphoric creation in honor of The Late Show funnyman Stephen Colbert. It all started back in the fall of 2006 when Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Gurus began tinkering away with Colbert’s personal take on ice cream perfection. Test batches were so euphoric that word quickly spread about the secret collaboration. The Rumor became reality when Colbert invited Ben and Jerry to join him in announcing the collaboration during an episode of The Colbert Report. The flavor has been a huge hit ever since, but what many people don’t know is that the project is, as Colbert puts it, “saving the world,” too. You see, he donates proceeds from the sale of AmeriCone Dream® to charity. The fund, named in honor of the flavor, supports charities of concern to Colbert, such as food and medical assistance for disadvantaged children, helping veterans and their families, and environmental causes. Like all of Ben & Jerry’s flavors, AmeriCone Dream™ ice cream is made with non-GMO sourced ingredients, including Fairtrade Certified sugar, cocoa, and vanilla. It’s made with eggs from cage-free hens, and comes packaged in responsibly sourced packaging. So, you can feel good about every spoonful!
