mmmmm….. beer ice cream Duff & D’oh-Nuts
You can imagine Homer Simpson falling asleep at night and dreaming of ice cream with two of his favorite flavors — beer and doughnuts.
Vermont’s famous ice-cream maker, Ben & Jerry’s, will bring that new concoction to Vermont’s newly famous town, Springfield, for the premiere of “The Simpsons” movie this weekend. 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.
