New Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Flavor Is Kind of a Big Deal

Ben & Jerry's unveiled a new celebrity-inspired ice cream flavor today, and it's kind of a big deal. Called "Scotchy Scotch Scotch", the butterscotch ice cream with ribbons of butterscotch swirl was created in honor of the scotch-loving, fictional TV news anchor Ron Burgundy from the movie Anchorman. Read on to discover more details.

We got to sample the new Ron Burgundy-inspired ice cream and found it to taste creamy and sweet. We loved how the ribbons of butterscotch had a crunchy candy texture - definitely a winner in our book!

The event kicked off with a performance by Nutty The Waterskiing Squirrel, who appeared in the first Anchorman movie. The pint-sized celebrity stood on miniature water skiis and held on to tiny cables as a remote-controlled toy powerboat tugged the squirrel around in circles in the pool.

A legion of Ron Burgundy look-a-likes emerged from a Ben & Jerry's scoop-truck, made to look like a Channel 4 News-truck, to celebrate the new flavor.

In Ben & Jerry's press release, Ron Burgundy made the following statement:

“Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch is a delicious ice cream and I hope Ben and Jerry consider my other suggestions,” said Ron Burgundy. “Malt liquor marshmallow, well liquor bourbon peanut butter, and cheap white wine sherbet.”

Grown-ups can have more fun by topping off scoops of Scotchy Scotch Scotch ice cream with some Scotch for an extra "scotchy" flavor.
