Stephen Colbert to throw ice cream

colbert ice creamIf you haven't yet tried Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream ice cream from Ben and Jerry's, you should. It is the most "just okay" ice cream you'll ever taste. Your tastebuds will be bombarded with a cavalcade of average, middle-of-the-road flavor.

Okay, so AmeriCone Dream never did much for me. I'm more of a Phish Food man, what can you do? However, on July 7, Colbert will be doing something Phish has never done: he'll throw the first pitch at a RiverDogs baseball game in Charleston, South Carolina (his hometown). He won't be throwing a ball, however, he'll be throwing a pint of AmeriCone Dream. I'd like to see the entire game played with a pint of ice cream, but that probably won't happen. Jerry Greenfield, the "Jerry" in "Ben and Jerry's" will catch the pint. Let's hope he does, because I'm pretty sure getting conked in the head by a pint of frozen ice cream is kind of painful, especially if one of those waffle cone shards get wedged in your eye.

In addition to tossing his ice cream, Colbert will also sit in on the radio broadcast during the game.

As a devoted and fawning member of the Colbert Nation, it pains me to agree with Adam that the Ben & Jerry's product is merely adequate. Even more sadly, the Haagen-Dazs flavor Caramel Cone is the exact same thing as AmeriCone Dream, but done slightly better for a marked improvement in taste. I hate having to admit that.

However, Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler far exceeded my expectations and I can't get enough of it. Based on this experience, I have to assume flavors created in honor of Barry Manilow or The Decemberists would seriously rock.

They should have done a flavor called "Stephen's Green (Ice) Cream Challenge"...

Down here in Alabama Americone Dream is so hard to find! Only Wal-mart has it and that's the only flavor which is always sold out...I still haven't been able to try it.

I love chocolate chip mint cookie though.
