The first flavor is Lazy Sunday, named for the viral digital short in which Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell scarf cupcakes and spit rhymes. Fittingly, the frozen treat has a base flavor reminiscent of vanilla cake batter and is spiked with cupcake pieces and chocolate frosting. Fans are gonna love it like McAdams loves Gosling.
Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch, a “mischievous” combo of chocolate ice cream, sweet-cream ice cream, caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and marshmallow, is meant to evoke Kristen Wiig’s violently naughty schoolgirl character. As Gilly herself might say, “It’s on.”
Both flavors will be available starting Thursday at Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops, with two additional “SNL” flavors in the works for later this year.
Hey, Ben & Jerry’s, mind if we make a few flavor suggestions?

Or, y’know, we’d be happy just to taste-test them, too.
