From the same people that give us Free Cone Day each year, Ben & Jerry’s knows precisely how to grab an audience: Attach overly delicious treats with our favorite television shows, movies, musicians and actors.
The trend started with Cherry Garcia in 1987 in honor of the now late great Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia, and the most recent addition is an ode to 30 Rock’s leading lady, Liz Lemon.
So hold on to your taste buds—we complied a list of 15 great Ben & Jerry’s flavors that get their title from some of our pop culture favorites.
15. Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt with a Blueberry Lavender Swirl
To honor the series finale of 30 Rock in January, Ben & Jerry’s announced their newest themed flavor named after Tina Fey’s food-obsessed character Liz Lemon. The frozen treat is a mixture of fruity flavors consisting of lemon Greek frozen yogurt with a blueberry lavender swirl. Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt is also dedicated to the early education organization Jumpstart, which serves children in low-income neighborhoods. Fey is a longtime supporter of Jumpstart and played a part in securing a portion of the proceeds to benefit the organization.
14. Imagine Whirled Peace
In 2008, the Vermont duo created an ice cream to celebrate the life and activism of John Lennon. Based on the legendary musician’s songs “Imagine” and “Give Peace a Chance,” this flavor is a blend of caramel and sweet cream ice creams mixed with toffee cookie pieces and fudge peace signs that symbolize the former Beatle’s outlook on life. The container description states: “We hope this whirly mixture of toffee cookies and fudge peace signs enlightens your bellies and souls and makes you ask what you can do to promote peace in your lives.”
