Elton John Joins Ben & Jerry's Elite: 'Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road' Ice Cream
Step aside Phish Food, Cherry Garcia, and Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies. There's another music-inspired Ben & Jerry's flavor on the scene: Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road, made of chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter "brickle," and white chocolate chunks. Brickle, you ask? Besides the punny allusion to Sir Elton's 1970s album and song, the made-up word refers to a toffee-like brittle.
Sir Elton has visited all 49 states, and the missing 50th is Vermont—but not for long. In honor of his sold-out show on Monday, July 21, the local hippie ice cream heroes created this flavor, available at the Ben & Jerry's Vermont scoop shops between July 18 and July 25. All proceeds will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
