NEWS: Non-Flamboyant Limited Edition Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Honors Sir Elton John

While the Ben & Jerry’s Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road ice cream isn’t new to those in Vermont, where the Ben & Jerry’s headquarters is located, because it was released there after Sir Elton John made his first-ever appearance in 2008, it’s new to the rest of us and will be available nationwide for a limited time.

Unfortunately, the packaging and ingredients aren’t close to being as flamboyant as Sir Elton John, whose wardrobe shines brighter than Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade. This limited batch ice cream contains chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, brickle candy pieces and white chocolate chunks.

It may be ice cream, but perhaps the coolest thing about the Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road is that a portion of the proceeds from it will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

A serving of it has 280 calories, 15 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 34 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 26 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein.

  1. We don’t get any good flavours out here. I was in Denver in December and really wanted to try Americone Dream, but since I was with my mom and sister who were both getting Lap-band surgery it seemed a bit mean.

  2. We rarely get the special edition ice creams out here, just the regular ones but at 8$ for a tiny container I rarely eat it.

    What is a brickle candy?

  3. angry bob has no interest in stupid ice cream flavors, but he might buy some anyway, because Elton John makes angry bob umm…what’s the opposite of angry?

  4. @grinder: I say sneak back into the country and get your hands on some.

    @Bear Silber: Come on! Elton once performed in a Donald Duck suit.

    @lex: I think it’s like brittle candy.

    @angry bob: Stoned?

  5. GOOD LORD that looks delish. toss in the words “peanut butter” anywhere near the words “chocolate ice cream” and i start salivating like pavlov’s dogs.

    i normally am turned off by B&J’s offensively cheesy flavor names and ugly graphics, but i can forgive them for this. MAYBE.

  6. mmm this is SO GOOD. I didn’t realize I couldn’t get it elsewhere until I left my East Coast school and the cravings hit.
