Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night Snack” joins Colbert’s “Americone Dream” in elite Ben & Jerry’s company

As part of Jimmy Fallon's second anniversary as host of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the Ben and Jerry of Ben & Jerry's presented Fallon, his crew and the audience with a brand-new flavor inspired by Fallon and The Roots: "Late Night Snack."

It's vanilla bean ice cream with salty caramel swirl and fudge-covered potato chip clusters.


Sound familiar?

Almost four years ago to the day, Ben & Jerry released a limited-edition flavor for Stephen Colbert called "AmeriCone Dream," which was made with vanilla ice cream, a caramel swirl and fudge-covered waffle cone pieces.


So. Salt or no salt? Potato chips or waffle cones? Who ya got?

Either way, it says something special about the connection Fallon and Colbert have made with their audiences that they've gotten their own ice-cream flavors. How is there no Team Coco flavor? What would it be (other than an orange sherbet base, obvs)? What would Letterman ice cream be? Kimmel? Leno? Ferguson? Stewart? Handler? So many possibilities…
