Ben & Jerry’s introduced two new Saturday Night Live-inspired flavors: Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch and Lazy Sunday.
Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch is made up of chocolate & sweet ice creams with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds, and a marshmallow swirl. It’s influenced by the SNL character, Gilly, a violent prank-happy schoolgirl. Lazy Sunday features vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl. The flavor was influenced by the popular SNL Digital Short, Lazy Sunday, which involves the two characters in the skit going to New York’s Magnolia Bakery and them macking on some cupcakes, because that bakery’s got all the bomb frostings. They love those cupcakes like McAdams loves Gosling.
A 1/2 cup serving of Lazy Sunday has 230 calories 13 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 20 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein. Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch has 250 calories, 14 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 23 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein per 1/2 cup serving.
The flavors are Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops-exclusives and there will be two more SNL sketch-inspired flavors later this year. Oooh, I hope Dusty Muffin is one of them.

How is Lazy Sunday not Mr Pibb flavored ice cream with Red Vines in it?
OK, not that I don’t love me some Chronic (what?) cles of Narnia…or that I haven’t been called Aaron Burr because of my propensity of dropping Hamiltons…but that was 8 years ago. There hasn’t been anything since.
I probably wouldn’t be so cranky about it if the flavor was Mr. Pibb and Red Vines.
(Though I did go watch it again because it still cracks me up, it just isn’t all that currently relevant, you know?)
*There hasn’t been anything since then they could use as a flavor?
