Ben & Jerry's Creates Frozen Yogurt Flavor Inspired By Jeremy Lin!

Taste The Lin-Sanity

Have U been watching all the Linsanity unfold this year as Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin continues to rise as a top competitor in the NBA?

Well, now you can taste it too! If you live near Harvard, at least.

Ben & Jerry's has honored the player with his own flavor of frozen yogort called Taste The Lin-Sanity! The Vermont-based company has only released the new concoction at its at Harvard Square location because Jeremy is a graduate of the prestigious university.

According to a spokesperson, the limited time promotion will run through the school's basketball season and also raise money for a to-be-determined Cambridge nonprofit.

It's a pretty big deal to have your own ice cream flavor and should be taken as a sign that Jeremy has truly made it. Other celebs who have influenced the ice cream makers to create a unique flavor include Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Alec Baldwin's Schweddy Balls character on Saturday Night Live.

The frozen yogurt, which blends vanilla with lychee honey swirls and a fresh waffle cookie on the side, caused some controversy too.

Originally, the company included pieces of fortune cookie in the their new flavor, which we can only assume was a nod to Lin's Asian heritage. Some people took offense to the cookie's inclusion, as Ben & Jerry's general manager for Boston and Cambridge explained:

"There seemed to be a bit of an initial backlash about it, but we obviously weren't looking to offend anybody and the majority of the feedback about it has been positive."

Everyone in the Harvard area can now relax and Taste The Lin-Sanity without feeling like they are supporting any damaging stereotypes because the flavor is now fortune cookie free!

As for the rest of us around the country, we'll just have to settle for tasting the company's new Greek frozen yogurt instead.

American Families Don't Like Schweddy Balls Ice Cream

schweddy-balls-ice-cream-afa-boycott.jpg

No sense of humor. None. Such a shame.

Earlier this month, we told you that a limited batch of specially flavored ice cream was hitting your grocery's freezer, brought to you by the masterminds at Ben & Jerrys. It's name - Schweddy Balls, after the iconic Alec Baldwin SNL skit.

Now, the innuendo of the name is what it has made it a classic joke for the last decade or so, but apparently the American Family Association's affiliate OneMillionMoms doesn't find the joke all that funny. In fact, their delicate sensibilities are offended and they are calling for a boycott against all Ben and Jerry's products because of the "vulgar new flavor" which has turned something as "innocent as ice cream into something repulsive."

Oh wait, there's more! They sent out this newsletter as a call to action for all of their constituents, saying:

Did LiLo Piss Off An Old Lady Grocery Shopping!?!

Filed under: Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan Groceries

We've heard some crazy stuff about her before, but this just sounds ridiculous!

According to an eyewitness, LiLo was not her best in a Venice grocery store the other night.

Apparently she pulled on up to the express lane, at least 20 items in tow (a-nnoying), with chips, cookies, ice cream, etc..

While the rest of the annoyed in line kept quiet, the old lady behind her allegedly went off, telling her it wasn't right to get in the express lane with more than the limit.

But Lindsay Lohan then reportedly told her

Introducing Ron Swanson Ice Cream

Filed under: TV NewsSilly!

ron-swanson-ben-and-jerry-ice-cream.jpg

If you're not watching Parks and Recreation yet, then honestly, we have nothing left to say to you.

No, but really, it's a HIGHlarious show with an incredible character named Ron Swanson, played by Nick Offerman.

Here's a little back story: Ron loves his meat, his scotch, and his privacy.

And if you put a plate of bacon and eggs with a glass of scotch in front of him and never tell him your name, then he'll become your best friend. Trust us.

So, now there's a campaign going around to get Ben & Jerry's to produce the Ron Swanson All of the Bacon & Eggs You Have Ice Cream.

Unfortunately, the flavor is just the figment of someone's amazing imagination. However, B&J did respond to the campaign with this:

Kelly Ripa on All My Children Cancellation

Filed under: TV NewsKelly RipaSad Sad

kelly ripa not happy about all my children cancellation

You are NOT alone, Kelly!

Former All My Children alum Kelly Ripa is not happy about the show's cancellation.

Here's what she said when she first heard about ABC's plans to cancel the show:

"All My Children means so much more to me than any place, because [Mark and I] met there, we had our children there, it was a big part of our lives, and I think that to cancel a show that has been on television for so many years, what are you going to replace it with? I mean I just don’t know. I just feel like it’s such a training ground for so many actors."

Sorry to hear it, Kelly. The show clearly means a lot to you.

For now, it might be time to treat yourself to a pint of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ben & Jerry's and tune in for some General Hospital.

How will U fill the void now that All My Children is gone? Ice Cream? GH? Some other way???

Jimmy Fallon Debuts Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavor

You know you’re a big deal when you get your own ice cream flavor!

Jimmy Fallon paired up with Ben & Jerry’s to create his own ice cream called Late Night Snack. It’s vanilla bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl and crunchy fudge-covered potato chip clusters.

The Roots performed an original song, “Ladysmith Snack Mambazo,” to commemorate the occasion.

This is totally a diet-killer but sounds totally delicious!

The Maniston On Kids: "I Don't Think For Me Personally That Is Something That I Want!"

wenn2933188jb.jpg

Well this confirms all of that speculation on why she and Brad split! He wanted children, and she wanted Ben & Jerry's and vodka!

Maniston recently sat down to talk about her new movie, The Switch, and when the topic turned to having children, she made some pretty inneresting comments!

She says:

"I don't think for me personally that is something that I want, but again I say you don't rule anything out because I don't know what's going to happen anymore. I could walk out of this hotel and meet the man of my dreams or get hit by a bus. Anything is possible."

Aww, bb!

And it's probably best you don't have a kid - what would you do if the little bundle of joy was allergic to cats?!

Bwa ha ha!

Thoughts??
