Ten New Rock n Roll Ice Cream Flavors for Ben & Jerry

Bohemian-Raspberry
When it was announced last week that the latest rock band tribute Ice Cream put out by Ben & Jerry's would be for Queen - flavor named Bohemian Raspberry - I questioned whether the bland ingredients fit Freddie Mercury's lifestyle. So I offered a prize of six pints of B&J to the best suggestion from YBNBY readers, and you didn't disappoint.

So now, here are the Top Ten Rock Band flavors that Ben & Jerry should put out, as suggested by the readers of YesButNoButYes.com, counting down to the winning entry.

Keith
#10: Rolling Stone

A rich, dark chocolate with vanilla and strawberry swirls and sprinkled with cocaine and the ashes of Keith Richard's dead father

Bananarama

#9: Bananarama
Vanilla ice cream with banana chunks mixed with marshmallow fluff (for their light and fluffy yet 'sticky' music).

96Tears1Uu

#8: ? Mysterian
What's in it? Nobody knows. But there are exactly 96 ingredients that are so sugary sweet they'll make you cry, cry, cry.

Fat Elvis

#7: Love Me Slender.
Could be any flavor, just low-fat!

Johnny-Cash-742414

#6: Johnny Casch
Black cherry ice cream (man in black), chocolate swirls, called chocolate "lines" on the packaging (for his occasional sweetness), and red hots (because they burn, burn, burn... )

Motley-Crue-014

#5: Motley Chew
Bland vanilla ice cream and thick chunks of Reisen-style caramels. A new technique allows the ice cream to grow fatter and taste worse the longer it sits in your freezer. Oh, and it has to be be packaged in a special 14 inch tall carton to account for the incredibly long candy tube packed with marshmallow cream.

Kiss

#4: The KISS Rocky Road All Night
An elaborately packaged ice cream, reportedly containing a drop of blood of each of the bandmembers. However, when you really examine the contents, it is pretty much vanilla.

Vanilla Ice

Equal #2: Vanilla Ice
Vanilla ice cream trying its hardest to taste like chocolate (but fails miserably, no one buys it and it ends up working in a video store).

Michael-Jackson-World-Music-Awards-2

Equal #2: Michael Jackson
Plain chocolate ice-cream and build it up yourself adding vanilla until it is white.

And finally our grand winner......

Milli Vanilli 2X2

#1: Milli Vanilla
Dreyer's/Edy's Vanilla Bean rebranded as Ben and Jerry's.

Congratulations to Drew - watch for an email so we can organize getting your prize to you.

It really does seem an insult to the flamboyant and glamorous life that Freddie Mercury lead to have it been Raspberry should not there be like gold leaf, or even something you would describe as rich in flavor.

I like to be surrounded by splendid things.

I want to lead the Victorian life, surrounded by exquisite clutter.

are two direct quotes by the late Freddie Mercury.

Couldn't this be the perfect chance for them to have an ice cream with some exquisite flair which would only match Mercury himself. Lets think dark rich truffle, and wine? Something expensive and decadent.

Gum and Raisenettes
