Ben & Jerry’s unveils new flavor, The Tonight Dough, for Jimmy Fallon

Four years ago, Ben and Jerry’s created a special ice-cream flavor for Jimmy Fallon to celebrate his tenure in late-night with Late Night Snack, but that name no longer fits. Hasn’t for a year.

So now, the host of The Tonight Show has a brand-new flavor, unveiled last night.

The Tonight Dough features Caramel & Chocolate Ice Creams with Chocolate Cookie Swirls & Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough. Ben & Jerry’s says proceeds from your purchase of the flavor will be dedicated to SeriousFun Children’s Network of global camps for children with serious illnesses. Learn more at

Fallon’s first flavor emerged from his friendly late-night feud with Stephen Colbert.

But what’s going to happen with Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream? Please don’t let the dream die!
