To celebrate "Saturday Night Live's" 40th anniversary, Ben & Jerry's decided to make two new flavors inspired by "SNL" sketches. Introducing Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch, inspired by none other than Gilly, and Lazy Sunday, a salute to the unforgettable digital short "The Lazy Sunday." Both flavors are now available at Ben & Jerry's scoop shops.
"Hey Gilly, did you eat all this ice cream?"
After receiving a couple of test pints in the mail, we all agreed that Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch needed to be finished, immediately.
The Lazy Sunday flavor aims to re-create the genius of the Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell pairing in "The Lazy Sunday" sketch, with a vanilla cake batter ice cream base, chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl.
The pieces of cupcake were fun to pick out, making a clear connection to the duo's love of Magnolia cupcakes in the sketch, but where are the Mr. Pibb and Red Vines? And we bet a scoop would taste even better while watching "The Chronicles of Narnia."
Ben & Jerry's plans to release two more "SNL"-inspired flavors later this year.
