Ben and Jerry’s announces new Lazy Sunday and Gilly flavors as part of expanded SNL partnership

Live from New York and a Ben & Jerry‘s scoop shop near you, it’s new Saturday Night Live flavors!


Lazy Sunday: Vanilla cake batter ice cream base with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces & a chocolate frosting swirl. Inspired by The Lonely Island’s digital smash hit for SNL with the rapping duo of Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell.


Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch: Chocolate & sweet cream ice creams, with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds & a marshmallow swirl. Inspired by the mischievous character created by Kristen Wiig for SNL.

“Our fans have a great sense of humor and we share their affinity for the comic genius of Saturday Night Live,” said Lisa Sholk, Ben & Jerry’s Marketing Manager. “We loved the challenge of creating ice cream personalities for those iconic sketches.”

The flavors will be available exclusively at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops across the U.S. and Canada. The ice cream company plans to unveil two more SNL sketch-based flavors later this year in conjunction with the yearlong celebration of SNL’s 40th anniversary.

In 2011, Ben & Jerry’s produced limited batches of Schweddy Balls, based on SNL’s public radio spoof with Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, and Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, the fictional owner of Season’s Eatings Bakery.

Last year, the company also produced a Liz Lemon flavor in honor of Tina Fey’s 30 Rock character, and a Scotchy Scotch Scotch batch to celebrate the Anchorman 2 movie.
