Looks like the rumors were true: Ben & Jerry’s was planning a Colbert-themed ice cream. The company unveiled Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream yesterday, which means you can have “the sweet taste of liberty in your mouth” as soon as it’s shipped out to your local supermarket.
What does this liberty taste like, you may ask? Basically like vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl. But it’s also so much more. Colbert issued a statement in character (the politically left-leaning comedian dons a faux conservative persona for his show) explaining that the way he sees it,
Dessert has a well-known liberal agenda. What I hope to do with this ice cream is bring some balance back to the freezer case.
He also plans to donate his portion of the proceeds to various charities (personally, I’m hoping he doesn’t stay in character when he chooses those … but maybe that’s just me). What other celebs would you like to see immortalized in ice cream?
