Ben & Jerry’s announces ‘SNL’ ice cream flavors — sadly, neither is ‘What Up Wit Fudge?’

Live from the freezer….it’s SNL ice cream!

Sorry for the predictability of that opener. It’s as predictable as the fact there will be SNL ice cream flavors in the Ben & Jerry’s line of treats. The company already made flavors for SNL-alum Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell and Tina Fey. SNL ice cream flavors were only a matter of time (and tastes).

SNL ice cream flavors will be…

So which classic characters or skits will be the first to get drizzled in fudge? Here are the two new SNL ice cream flavors announced today from the Ben & Jerry or whoever is in the role of Ben & Jerry these days.

The first new ice cream is called Lazy Sunday, based on the famous sketch with Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell. In “Lazy Sunday,” Samberg and Parnell wax poetic about their love of cupcakes — Magnolia cupcakes, to be specific. Fittingly, Ben & Jerry’s new flavor contains a vanilla cake batter ice cream base with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl. The cupcake pieces are no joke — they’re soft and chewy and taste just like a cupcake. In total, everything about this flavor unquestionably nails the essence of “cupcake.”

The second new flavor Ben & Jerry’s is debuting is called Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch. Based on Kristen Wiig’s silly SNL character, the flavor contains a marshmallow swirl “as frantic and mischievous as the flavor’s namesake,” Ben & Jerry’s said in a press release. Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch is a combination of chocolate and sweet cream ice creams, with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and the aforementioned marshmallow swirl. A bit like Rocky Road on steroids, this new flavor is also spectacular.

The Lazy Sunday SNL Ice Cream flavor makes sense but Gilly? Ugh. Hopefully the flavor doesn’t get as old as quickly as the character.

Two more SNL ice cream flavors will be released during the historic 40th season of the show. What up wit Fudge is the way to go.

OOOOOOOOOWEEEEEEEEEE What up wit fudge? What up wit fudge?
