Colbert, Ben & Jerry to Launch New Ice Cream Tonight!

Colbert, Ben & Jerry to Launch New Ice Cream Tonight!

Tonight, Stephen Colbert will see his AmeriCone Dream come true when Ben & Jerry's co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield appear on The Colbert Report to launch Colbert's ice cream! The AmeriCone Dream consists of vanilla ice cream, fudge-covered waffle cone pieces, and a caramel swirl.

Colbert has high hopes for the impact his dessert will have in freezer politics. According to a Ben & Jerry's press release:

Colbert believes AmeriCone Dream can make a difference. "I’m not afraid to say it. Dessert has a well-known liberal agenda. What I hope to do with this ice cream is bring some balance back to the freezer case."

Stephen Colbert is donating his proceeds from the sale of AmeriCone Dream to charity through The Stephen Colbert AmeriCone Dream Fund. The Fund will support charities of concern to Stephen such as food and medical assistance for disadvantaged children, helping veterans and their families, and environmental causes. Said Colbert, "I will save the world."

Well, whether the ice cream is another step toward saving the world or dominating it, my buddy Yum and I can't wait to taste the truthiness. Tune in to Comedy Central tonight at 11:30 p.m. to witness this historic event.
