D’oh! Ben & Jerry’s is bringing a special ice cream to the citzens of Springfield, Vermont for one day only to celebrate the premiere of “The Simpsons.” If any of our readers get a chance to try it, please let us know how it tastes!
The town won a recent contest among communities sharing a name with the fictitious home base of “The Simpsons,” and will host a daylong celebration and several premiere showings of the new film on Saturday.
Ben & Jerry’s Homer homage is called “Duff & D’oh-Nuts,” and according to a news release from the ice-cream maker is an “extremely limited, one-time and one-day-only flavor” that’s “a combination of chocolate and cream stout ice creams with glazed chocolate donuts.” Duff is the brand of beer featured in “The Simpsons” television series, and doughnuts are Homer’s culinary raison d’etre.
In another nod to Homer, Ben & Jerry’s will for one day rename its Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor “Chocolate Chip Cookie D’oh!” in reference to Homer’s famous exclamation.
