Ben & Jerry's Releases "Scotchy Scotch Scotch"

Posted By on Thu, Oct 24, 2013 at 2:01 PM

“'Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch' is a delicious ice cream and I hope Ben and Jerry consider my other suggestions,” says Ron Burgundy.  “Malt liquor marshmallow, well liquor bourbon, peanut butter, and cheap white wine sherbet.”

Yep, that Ron Burgundy, the jazz-flute-playing newsman who's "kind of a big deal" as played by Will Ferrell in the film Anchorman. In anticipation of the long-awaited December 20 debut of the sequel, Anchorman 2:  The Legend Continues, Ben & Jerry's is releasing a flavor based on Ron Burgundy's three favorite things.

The flavor is currently available in scoop shops and will debut in stores in upcoming weeks. So what can customers expect?

Not a wallop of whisky, that's for sure. The ice cream is decidedly more family friendly, with a butterscotch base and butterscotch swirls. The base taste is strikingly similar to the yellow-wrapped hard candies your fifth-grade teacher gave you when you completed all your chores. Or maybe that was just me.

The creamy ice cream gets some of that flavor via crushed butterscotch candies just like the ones I remember. The taste is satisfying, but the texture is unsettling, like having large grains of sand in your dessert.

The swirls added a more a pleasant mouthfeel, very similar to caramel sauce. It also reveals the slightest tinge of Scotchy Scotch taste, though I'm assured that the scoop is completely virgin. But don't tell Ron Burgundy that, unless you want to keep the ice cream all to yourself. Me, I'm still waiting for malt liquor marshmallow.
