Ice Cream: The Perfect Movie Tie-In?

"I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly..."

“I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly…”

Ben & Jerry’s recently announced their newest flavor, “Scotchy Scotch Scotch,” a product tie-in for the Anchorman sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. It’s an interesting, if not perfect, idea for a movie tie-in. Maybe it’s because I’m a bit of an ice cream addict, but I do think it’s a pretty smart idea. You take a movie that is expected to be a hit and/or already has a huge fan base and have the best ice cream makers in the world, Ben & Jerry’s, create an ice cream flavor themed after the movie. It’s brilliant!

Ever since Ben & Jerry’s announcement, I’ve been thinking of other possible movies and their corresponding ice cream flavors:

1. Thor: The Dark WorldThe Dark Swirl РDark chocolate ice cream, swirls of caramel, and little cookie Mjolnirs.

2. Captain America: The Winter SoldierSuper Soldier Sundae – Vanilla Bean ice cream, ribbons of Blueberry and Strawberry syrup, and little Chocolate stars.

3. The Hunger Games: Catching FireKatniss Krunch – French Vanilla ice cream with crunchy, Mockingjay-shaped cinnamon cookies.

4. The Amazing Spiderman 2Shockingly Amazing – Electric blueberry frozen yogurt with rhino-shaped cookies and chocolate webs.

5. Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesCowabunga Cream Р Mint Ice cream with chocolate chips shaped like katanas, nunchucks, sais, and bo staffs, swirled with green ooze (Peppermint).

6. 50 Shades of Grey50 Shades of Yumm– Gray-colored Vanilla ice cream with chocolate covered graham cracker whips and handcuffs.

Those are just a few ideas I’ve had. They’re really not that easy to think up. What are some delicious combinations you’ve thought up?
