Free Ice Cream Day: Musicians Who Have Teamed with Ben & Jerry’s

Free Ice Cream Day at Ben & Jerry’s is finally here again, and in this weather—well, let’s just say you know where we’ll be on our lunch break.

Ben & Jerry’s has long been known for their interesting collaborations, and especially those with musicians. Here are the best joint ventures into dairy heaven that have resulted from the ice cream mavens.

1. Peanut Butter Jam Session

This one isn’t named for any musician in particular—just a musical nod to the classic treat.

2. Cherry Garcia

The classic ode to Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia features cherry ice cream with cherries and fudge.

3. Phish Food

Phish Food, obviously for Phish, is a chocolate base with marshmallow and caramel swirls and fish-shaped chocolate pieces.

4. Bohemian Raspberry

This make is a simple vanilla with brownies and raspberry swirls, dedicated to Freddie Mercury and his band, Queen.

5. Magic Brownies

Magic Brownies, made for Dave Matthews Band, is a black raspberry-sweet cream swirl with fudgy brownies. Sweet they rock and sweet they roll.

Sir Elton’s flavor is made from a chocolate peanut butter cookie dough base with brickle candy and white chocolate pieces mixed in.

This chocolate and malt ice cream mix, named for the festival in Manchester, Tennessee (which is a sister festival to Outside Lands), includes whiskey caramel swirls and english toffee pieces.

8. Peach Cobbler

Willie Nelson is country music, so Ben & Jerry honored him with a timeless country flavor: peach ice cream with a peach swirl and cinnamon sugar shortbread chunks.

9. Imagine Whirled Peace

The caramel and sweet cream flavor is dedicated to the late John Lennon and is swirled with fudge peace signs and toffee cookies.
