Ben and Jerry's debuts 'Saturday Night Live' flavors
0619-ben-and-jerrys-970-630x420

        Ben & Jerry's is adding two new flavors to its huge catalog of interesting and themed treats, this time recognizing sketch comedy.
        The new "Saturday Night Live" treats will be flavored to honor two beloved skits - Kristen Wiig's "Gilly" and "Lazy Sunday," the digital short starring Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg.
        Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch will provide a burst of flavor, featuring chocolate and sweet cream ice cream with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and marshmallow swirl.
        Vanilla cake batter ice cream is the base for Lazy Sunday, which will also contain chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces with a chocolate frosting swirl. Appropriate, since the skit contains the lyrics "I love those cupcakes like McAdams loves Gosling."
        There will be several other promotional ice cream flavors as SNL gets ready to begin its 40th season.
        Today recommends these brilliant puns as future flavors:

"Living on Van-illa Down by the RIVER
Hans and Franz's German Chocolate Freeze
Cawfee Tawk
Roseanne Roseannadanna Banana Blast
Wayne's Swirled"
