Phish Food Hits Stores, For A Good Cause

Feb. 21 [7:55 EST] -- Meanwhile Phish had its Grateful Dead connection cemented by ice cream moguls Ben and Jerry's when "Phish Food" was finally unveiled on Thursday.

The flavor, which features marshmallow, caramel, and fish-shaped chocolate chips in chocolate ice cream, made its debut in stores on Friday.

The folks who brought you "Cherry Garcia" bestowed a similar honor on the heavy-touring Phish. And, as with "Cherry Garcia," proceeds from "Phish Food" will go to charity.

In Phish's case, the money will fund environmental efforts on Vermont's Lake Champlain, for which the band will play a benefit show at the Flynn Theater in Burlington, Vermont on March 18.
