Taste test: Ben & Jerry's new Ron Burgundy-inspired Scotchy Scotch Scotch ice cream
Ben & Jerry’s has a history of immortalizing TV and movie characters in ice cream form—there’s been Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt with a Blueberry Lavender Swirl, Neapolitan Dynamite and Schweddy Balls. The latest to join them in the freezer case is Scotchy Scotch Scotch, a Ron Burgundy-inspired ice cream flavor.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues comes out December 20, so Ben & Jerry made a pint for the occasion. Scotchy Scotch Scotch features butterscotch ice cream laced with buttery, crunchy ribbons of butterscotch (three fingers worth). It’s really sweet and tastes like the butterscotch hard candies your grandmother keeps in a jar, but unlike some other Ben & Jerry flavors, it’s simple and delicious. And thankfully, it’s way, way better than the sour mess that’s Liz Lemon Greek Yogurt.
And this ice cream has earned an important distinction—it’s the first taste test in my three months at TOC in which we’ve all actually liked something. If that’s not an endorsement, then I don’t know what is.
