This just in!
To celebrate the highly anticipated and star-studded release of Will Ferrell's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (in theaters Dec. 20), ice cream makers Ben & Jerry's have announced that they're releasing a flavor dedicated to Ron Burgundy and the rest of San Diego's Action 4 News team, and it's called "Scotchy Scotch Scotch."
(No, there isn't any actual scotch whiskey in the ice cream.)
According to the press release, "the flavor is a creamy concoction of butterscotch ice cream with ribbons of butterscotch swirl."
"Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch is a delicious ice cream and I hope Ben and Jerry consider my other suggestions," said Ron Burgundy. "Malt liquor marshmallow, well liquor bourbon peanut butter, and cheap white wine sherbet."
The flavor was officially unveiled at New York City's Pier 36 with a performance by Nutty The Waterskiing Squirrel, as seen in the first Anchorman film, and immediately followed by the appearance of a Ben & Jerry's scoop-truck-turned-Channel 4 News-truck, which rolled onto the scene transporting a legion of blazer-wearing Ron Burgundy lookalikes that served samples of the flavor to people who couldn't wait for it to go down, down into their bellies.
Lisa Sholk, Ben & Jerry's marketing maven, said, "As a company who believes our fans deserve nothing but the best, we have great respect for Ron Burgundy, who takes the same belief to heart."
"Having Ben & Jerry's celebrate the return of Ron Burgundy to the big screen with the introduction of this special ice cream is an exciting and delicious way to build anticipation for the film," said LeeAnne Stables, President of Consumer Products at Paramount Pictures. "We especially enjoyed the sampling process over the last several months to find the perfect Scotchy scotch flavor."
