Jimmy Fallon and Ben & Jerry’s announce new ice cream flavor – Late Night Snack

first_imgBen & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc,NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group and ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ are teaming with iconic ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s to introduce the new flavor entitled ‘Late Night Snack.’ The unique new flavor features a rich vanilla bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl and crunchy fudge covered potato chip clusters ‘ the perfect mix of salt and sweet for a late night snack. The concoction was inspired by a ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ skit in which Fallon and house band The Roots performed an original song, ‘Ladysmith Snack Mambazo,’ about Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Late Night Snack begins arriving in supermarkets and Ben & Jerry’s locations around the country this week.‘When we learned that Jimmy Fallon was a fan of Ben & Jerry’s, and he was willing to support the Fair Trade effort, we jumped at the chance to develop a new flavor inspired by his skit,’ said Ben & Jerry’s Co-founder Jerry Greenfield. ‘Our team came up with a truly unique flavor that is one-of-a-kind, just like Fallon!’The research and development team at Ben & Jerry’s had long considered a flavor with potato chips in some fashion. After initial talks with Fallon, who suggested fudge covered potato chips as a chunk in his flavor, the Flavor Gurus at Ben & Jerry’s knew they had to make the combination work.‘Having our own flavor of Ben and Jerry’s gives everyone here at ‘Late Night’ an excuse to do what we were doing anyway, staying up late and eating pint after pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Only now we can call it ‘research,’‘ said Fallon. ‘And we came up with the perfect combo of salty and sweet. I can’t wait for people to try it!’‘It’s been really fun working with Ben & Jerry’s on Jimmy’s concept for Late Night Snack,’ said Kim Niemi, Senior Vice President, NBC Universal Television Consumer Products. ‘With this partnership, ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ has a great opportunity to create something delicious and do something good – by joining in the efforts to encourage Fair Trade food practices.’In February 2010 Ben & Jerry’s pledged to convert its product line to Fair Trade certified by 2013. Fair Trade supports fair wages, a safe work environment, sustainability for the land, animal husbandry and community development for farming communities. Accordingly, Late Night Snack is made with Fair Trade vanilla in the vanilla ice cream and Fair Trade cocoa in the potato chip cluster fudge coating. NBC and Fallon have pledged their share of the proceeds to Fair Trade Universities to encourage the use of Fair Trade products on campuses around the country.For more information on Ben & Jerry’s or to find your local Scoop Shop, visit www.benjerry.com(link is external).About ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’In March 2009, ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ made its broadcast debut with Fallon as the third host of the NBC comedy-talk franchise.

Gold Cup 2019: United States cruises to win over Guyana in opener

first_imgMcKennie injury a worry for USAIt was all going so well for USA before McKennie came off with a suspected hamstring injury in the 74th minute. The Schalke midfielder had set up the opener and his absence would be a blow for USA.What’s next?USA’s campaign continues against Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday, while Guyana take on Panama on the same day. Paul Arriola opened the scoring in the 28th minute before a Tyler Boyd brace and Gyasi Zardes goal in the second half.Having been under some pressure after struggles in friendlies, it was the ideal start for the defending champions as it joined Panama on three points in the group.Christian Pulisic was particularly bright down the left early for USA, who while dominant took time to create clear-cut chances.Boyd fired a chance wide in the 18th minute, while Pulisic was denied by a good save from Guyana goalkeeper Akel Clarke.But USA found a deserved opener through Arriola in the 28th minute.Weston McKennie did brilliantly down the left before passing inside to Arriola, who curled an effort past Clarke and into the far corner from inside the area.Goal @usmnt! @PaulArriola opens up the scoreline for the Stars and Stripes! #GoldCup2019 #ThisIsOurs pic.twitter.com/wr1Wedo7ri— Gold Cup 2019 (@GoldCup) June 19, 2019Pulisic almost teed up Nick Lima for USA’s second, but the fullback’s strike was well saved by Clarke after a pass from the attacker.USA should have gone into the break with a 2-0 lead, however Pulisic made poor connection with a header from a Lima cross at the back post on the stroke of halftime.But Boyd’s first international goal would double USA’s lead six minutes into the second half.Michael Bradley’s pass found Boyd, who took an excellent first touch before powering an angled finish into the bottom corner for USA’s 1,000th goal.51′ | GOAL @Tyler__Boyd scores the 1,000 goal in the history of the #USMNT‼ #GoldCup2019 pic.twitter.com/tGTnvK7GkF— U.S. Soccer MNT (@USMNT) June 19, 2019Zardes was fortunate to add to USA’s lead, Arriola’s powerful strike partially cleared by a defender into the forward’s face and into the back of the net.USA was in control from then on, although McKennie came off with a suspected hamstring injury.Boyd completed his brace in the 81st minute, taking a pass from Arriola before his 20-yard strike took a deflection and beat Clarke.What does it mean? USA makes bright startAfter disappointing friendly losses to Jamaica and Venezuela earlier this month, USA’s win was much-needed. Large parts of the performance would have also pleased head coach Gregg Berhalter and the group stage at the CONCACAF Gold Cup could be an opportunity for a much-needed confidence boost.Boyd, Arriola provide plenty of sparkAlthough it was against Guyana, Boyd and Arriola showed their worth. They combined for the fourth goal after earlier scoring one each and their pace and creativity were crucial for USA. The United States started its CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign with a comfortable 4-0 win over Guyana on Tuesday.USA ended a three-game winless run in fine fashion, dominating Guyana for the most part in the Group D clash at Allianz Field in Minnesota.last_img read more

Then we wonder why the state is in a financial mess? I really don’t think the Gestapo needs tax money to run their “donut fundraising” project. It’s time to stop this political endoctrination of “Government protecting us from ourselves”. Report Reply 1 reply · active 271 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down s. edberg · 271 weeks ago mmm now it makes sense why the “town” of Caldwell had sumner county sheriff deputies working in the city issuing seat belt tickets. The citizens were outraged as they have a wonderful small town with 3 fully vetted police officers who are supported whole heartedly by the caldwell citizens. So again there was State money to be spent and by golly they were going to spend it. Report Reply 0 Vote up Vote down police supporter · 271 weeks ago Tired taxpayer it appears that some of you do need to be led by the hand. Some of you cannot seem to wear your seat belt. Some do not understand you shouldn’t drive after getting drunk. Some do not realize they need to have insurance on their vehicle and register it properly. All if these when there are accidents (in which case you will need a police report ) drive the cost of insurance up on all of us. Why is it when the police do their job you complain. My only wish is someday they could come to wear you bottom feeders work and set around and ***** about how you do the simplest of task. See how you would appreciate their input.

During the campaign, officers wrote 79 safety belt citations, two child restraint citations, five Drivers License violations, three No Insurance violations, two registration violations, one speeding violations and made two traffic arrests.“Stops and tickets are primarily meant to teach,”said Wellington Police Chief Tracy Heath. “If you were stopped, you, hopefully, learned from your experience. If so, we have made the roads a little safer for you and those you share the road with. We will continue to do that because, while the Click It or Ticket campaign may be over, traffic enforcement never is.”Click It or Ticket was supported by a grant to the Wellington Police Department from the Kansas Department of Transportation.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
