We’ve got big ice cream news, and we’re not “sorry” about it.

Ben & Jerry’s on Thursday announced the release of new Saturday Night Live-inspired flavors, one based on Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell’s 2005 Digital Short “Lazy Sunday,” and the other based on Kristen Wiig’s precociously apologetic character Gilly.

But what do they taste like, you ask? Here’s a breakdown of B&J’s latest flavors:

lazy-sunday-bulk-detail-1* Lazy Sunday (pictured right) consists of “a vanilla cake batter ice cream base with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl.” Forgoing the suggested mix of Red Vines and Mr. Pibb was probably a good call.

* Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch is “a combination of chocolate & sweet cream ice creams, with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and a marshmallow swirl as frantic and mischievous as the flavor’s namesake.”

So tell us…

    Mr. Pibb and Red Vines equals crazy delicious! That was a great short. Hopefully the ice cream is good, too.

  2. Andrea says:

    The more important question is how many pints pf each did TVLine receive as “edible swag”?

    aren’t they a few years late on this?? the actors involved have all left SNL!!

    Ugh…why bring Gilly of all Wiig’s annoying characters back from the dead like this? And just to be extra cranky…where’s the neither option? I’m probably in an extreme minority, but neither of these sound appetizing to me. I hate cake, so Lazy Sunday lost me right away. The Gilly one had me until almonds…nuts just ruin everything.

  5. Delirious says:

    I want this “Lazy Sunday” ice cream, and I want it NOW. I SAID NOW, DAMMIT.

    (and I wouldn’t mind trying Gilly’s as well… I wonder if they’ll sell it here in Spain as well [insert pout here])
