Things We Wish Existed: Ben & Jerry's (Fan-Made) Breaking Bad Ice Cream
Be still, our twitching hearts. Walter White's signature ice cream flavor doesn't exist just yet. But the good news is that the Ben & Jerry's execs in Vermont have a full two and a half weeks before the season five premiere to make this candy-speckled creation a reality. We can dream, can't we?
Designer Jon Defreest, the same creative mind who dreamed up the fictitious Ron Swanson Scotch-flavored bacon-and-egg ice cream and the Mad Men-inspired "Sterling Scooper" vodka-flavored ice cream with gold flakes and chocolate cigars, recently debuted another one of his TV-inspired fan-made Ben & Jerry's creations, this time based on AMC's Breaking Bad.
But unlike many of Defreest's other Photoshop fantasies, this one actually sounds like something we'd want to buy several kilos of. We doubt even Gustavo Fring could resist a scoop of Walter White's Heisen-Brrr-g Crunch: vanilla ice cream swirled with miniature, Hesienberg-shaped black licorice hats and blue raspberry Pop Rocks meant to represent the show's infamous "blue meth."
Don't forget that this is also the series that introduced us to the fictional Los Pollos Hermanos, the chicken chain that moonlighted as a drug distribution network. Maybe Ben & Jerry's ice cream trucks will be the new way to move product in the new season? On second thought, that sounds like pretty disastrous product placement.
