BURLINGTON, Vt. - Dec. 20, 2017 // PRNewswire // - As the year comes to an end and you need that last minute, unique gift or special item for visiting friends and family, it's the final days that you can order Ben & Jerry's Special Stash flavor: Marshmallow Moon. Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was the inspiration and partner on this vanilla ice cream with marshmallow and graham cracker swirls and fudge flakes concoction. The offering is available only for an extremely limited time over the next few weeks on Ben & Jerry's e-commerce store and at participating Scoop Shops.
"I'm so excited about Marshmallow Moon," Fallon said. "And the name totally makes sense, because the Tonight Show logo has a moon, and I have a body like a marshmallow." The flavor kicks off Ben & Jerry's Special Stash offering, where the ice cream maker will churn out small-run artisan batches of funky flavors available in Scoop Shops and store.benjerry.com for fans to purchase for a limited time only.
Ben & Jerry's fans can purchase Marshmallow Moon only at participating Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops and online at store.benjerry.com.
Fallon's proceeds from every Marshmallow Moon pint sold will benefit the SeriousFun Children's Network - an organization committed to providing children living with serious illnesses with life-changing camp experiences, in the safest and most supportive environment and with the highest-quality medical care.
