This just in from San Diego’s Channel 4 News team: Ben & Jerry’s has launched a limited-batch, “Anchorman 2”-themed ice cream flavor named “Ron Burgundy’s Scotchy Scotch Scotch.”
All together now: Great Odin’s raven!
The new concoction is an ode to the newscaster’s favorite spirit, featuring a butterscotch ice cream base swirled with a crunchy butterscotch ribbon of flavor.
“Scotchy Scotch Scotch is a delicious ice cream and I hope Ben and Jerry consider my other suggestions,” Ron Burgundy said in a statement. “Malt liquor marshmallow, well liquor bourbon peanut butter, and cheap white wine sherbet.”
While you contemplate those other tempting tongue-teasers, the folks at Ben & Jerry’s were kind enough to send over samples of Scotchy Scotch Scotch for the MTV News staff to taste test. Here are the reviews:
“I love this ice cream? Damnit. Who put a question mark on the teleprompter?” — India Nicholas
“In the words of the immortal Ron Burgundy himself, ’I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly…’ Find this flavor wherever you can. Then hoard it. You might be a little antsy from all the sugar, but you won’t be sorry.” — Jonathan Goldner
“It’s no Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream, but it’s a close second for the best ice cream flavor based on a fictional newscaster.” — Kevin P. Sullivan
“I ate a big red candle.” — Josh Horowitz
“My only regret is that it did not feature whiskey.” — Brenna Ehrlich
“While I found it delicious
and nutritious, I’m predisposed to praise anything “Anchorman”-related. Probably would have loved the Sex Panther flavor, too.” — Adam Murphy
“I ate the whole pint of ice cream. Heck, I’m not even mad — that’s amazing.” — Matt Harper
“100% of the time, it’s delicious every time.” — Christina Beale
“It tastes like all the candy in my grandmother’s purse.” — Daniel Montalto
“It’s so damn hot, this was a good choice.” — Brian Phares
“Ugh. Are you sure they didn’t send us Whale’s Vagina?” — Eric Ditzian
“This pint totally took me to Pleasure Town.” — Amy Wilkinson
Scotchy Scotch Scotch is being served up in scoop shops now and will find its way to store freezers in the coming weeks. “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” opens in theaters December 20.
