Nation, Grab Your Spoons and Go to Ben & Jerry's

Four years ago, Stephen Colbert and Ben & Jerry's teamed up to create a new ice cream flavor, Americone Dream, and today the flavor is available at all Ben & Jerry's locations. Today you can get two-for-one scoops of Americone Dream, vanilla ice cream blended with caramel and bits of fudge-covered waffle cone, at any Ben & Jerry's shop. Better yet, Colbert is donating all of his earnings from sales for a year to the Yellow Ribbon Fund, a nonprofit that assists injured troops and their families. Nation, it's time to grab a spoon and inhale your Americone Dream.
