Jimmy Fallon received his own Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream flavor a few years ago as host of NBC's Late Night, in the form of the delicious "Late Night Snack" that we're sure many of you are familiar with. Now that he's deep into hosting The Tonight Show, the ice cream innovators Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield decided to give the host another flavor. This week, they announced the new flavor, "The Tonight Dough Starring Jimmy Fallon" during The Tonight Show! Plus, the sales proceeds of this new ice cream flavor go to charity, so check out more on this news below!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this new ice cream flavor inspired by Fallon and his new hosting gig is an "extra-chunky concoction [that] combines chocolate and caramel ice creams with chocolate chip cookie dough, peanut butter cookie dough and a crunchy chocolate cookie swirl."
Hitting shelves soon, if you decide to go out and buy this new flavor, your money will go to a great cause! All proceeds from "The Tonight Dough" purchases will go to the SeriousFun Children's Network charity. This organization helps children with serious illnesses, as well as their families, with free-to-attend camps that lift spirits and change lives. Plus, SeriousFun's name will appear on every pint of ice cream for the new flavor as well as in-store marketing to raise awareness.
