Jimmy Fallon Releases His Third Ice Cream Flavor (Video)

If you caught “The Tonight Show” on TV Nov. 1, or better yet, attended the Jimmy Fallon-hosted late night talk show, you already know the former SNL cast member released his very own Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor, “Marshmallow Moon.”
Marshmallow Moon is the first flavor from Ben & Jerry’s Special Stash, “a series of micro-batches that can’t be mass produced or widely distributed,” according to their official website. And the flavor is so limited-edition that you won’t find it anywhere in supermarkets, wholesale clubs or the bodegas with off-brand cookies.
That is, unless you were one of the lucky ones to be in “The Tonight Show” audience, where Fallon gave away Marshmallow Moon pints to everyone a la Oprah Winfrey-style. For the less fortuitous, you can check Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops and BenJerry.com for a taste of Marshmallow Moon, which is available in limited quantities.
Jimmy fallon ice cream, the special dessert was introduced by Fallon on “The Tonight Show” and explained its namesake was inspired by the show’s logo and because “I have a body like a marshmallow” (video below). The flavor and toppings combination forms a frozen s’more, Thrillist pointed out — vanilla ice cream with marshmallow and graham cracker swirls and fudge chunks.
Ben & Jerry’s second Fallon-inspired ice cream flavor, the “Tonight Dough,” was released two years ago and is part of the creamery’s permanent flavor collection, which is among the company’s top-selling flavors — for obvious reasons. Ben & Jerry’s official website describes the Tonight Dough as a combination of “two ice creams, two cookie doughs, and a crunchy cookie swirl.”
A less popular Fallon flavor, the “Late Night Snack” was discontinued by the end of 2014 after a four-year run, when Fallon switched over to host “The Tonight Show.” Flavor-wise, Jimmy Fallon is 3 for 3 — the Late Night Snack was a vanilla bean ice cream with salty caramel swirl and fudge-covered potato chip clusters.
Just like that of the Tonight Dough, sales of Marshmallow Moon will go to the SeriousFun Children’s Network, a charity providing fun camp experiences to children living with serious illnesses, reported Thrillist.
