Got the Munchies? Try Willie's New Ice Cream

Got the Munchies? Try Willie's New Ice Cream

Not to be outdone by Stephen Colbert, Willie Nelson now has his own flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, called Country Peach Cobbler. It sounds quite delicious and unlike any other Ben & Jerry's flavor I've tried: peach-flavored ice cream laced with cinnamon-sugar shortbread pieces. Plus, the packaging has Willie's face on it, which could provide hours of laughs. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Farm Aid.

You may have heard about the voluntary recall of 250,000 pints of Country Peach Cobbler, but no need to worry unless you are allergic to wheat. The ice cream is fine, but the packaging lacks an allergy warning. For details on how Ben & Jerry came up with the flavor,

In an interview with Ben & Jerry's spokesperson Sean Greenwood, Rolling Stone Rock & Roll Daily learned that the ice cream makers are far more likely to name a flavor after a musician with do-gooder tendencies. Though the article doesn't really explain whether Nelson approached Ben & Jerry's or vice versa, it does shed some light on the flavor selection:

Willie’s flavor took after the Southern style peach dessert because, according to Greenwood, “Willie is a downhome Texan Americana guy.” When they floated the peach idea by Mr. Nelson, his response was appropriately laid-back: “Groovy!” he reportedly drawled.

I'm going to see Willie Nelson during his five-night stint at the Fillmore in April, and you can bet I'll be picking up a pint or two of this stuff.

Very Cool, and you can eat it and give to Farm Aid at the same time, which is kind of appropriate considering the farmers grow the peaches! ------------------------------------------------------ "If men could only know each other, they would neither idolize nor hate" Elbert Hubbard

My boyfriend and I just made a trip to VT to the Ben & Jerry factory for my birthday where we got to try some new B&J flavors. In addition to Willie's new flavor, be on the lookout for Creme Brulee, a wonderfully creamy yet not too sweet flavor due out soon. YUM.

I think this is so great. I'm definitely going to try it. I love peach cobbler and Willie Nelson.

Aw, I want to try it! I rarely eat peach cobbler (as opposed to oh, cookie dough), but the times I've had it it was pretty good. Like the sound of the cinnamon-sugar shortbread pieces.

Peach Cobbler sounds good to long as it doesn't have the same description as their Karamel Sutra ice cream. I don't want Willy anywhere near that... Nelson! I mean, I don't want Willy Nelson anywhere near that. Sheesh!

That sounds absolutely delicious, you totally activated my sweet tooth. Although I am disappointed about the lack of clever name.

It sounds good, but I don't know if I eat something with Willy Nelson's face on it.
