Ask Midtown Lunch: Americone Dream
“Has anybody seen Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream anywhere in Midtown?” -Rob C. (on 49th btw. 6+7th)
Ah yes… the elusive new Ben & Jerry’s flavor. Vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl. Who wouldn’t like that??? (Liberty haters apparently) Interesting you should ask this Rob… I just got an amazing tip. Both Midtown Locations of Ben & Jerry’s just received Americone Dream shipments today!!! The Times Square Location (8th Ave. & 43rd) has about 12-15 as of 2:45pm (They got in about 25, but half of them were immediately purchased by The Colbert Report, which tapes in Midtown West). The Ben & Jerry’s below Rockefeller Center has them in as well. They only come in the pre-packaged pints though, so you may want to get a friend or two together to share! I smell afternoon ice cream break… see you there!
Anybody else seen the flavor in Midtown? Possibly in Midtown East? Ben & Jerry’s website has a “flavor locator”, but none of the 2007 flavors are listed…
