Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack

Jimmy Fallon may be a pretty dubious talent as an actor (he co-starred in Taxi, one of the worst buddy cop films ever made, and was decidedly less manly than Queen Latifah in it) and a lot of people dismissed him as a talk show host after replacing Conan O'Brien, but he is good at one thing: being the inspiration to an ice cream flavor. Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack is a tribute to his show, and after tasting this tasty combination of vanilla bean ice cream, salty caramel swirl and fudge covered potato chips, it's probably even better than Stephen Colbert's American Dream. (Although Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler is probably the best Ben & Jerry's celebrity flavor.) Just as impressive, Fallon's ice cream contains Fair Trade vanilla and cocoa, and Fallon's proceeds for the ice cream will go to Fair Trade Universities to promote the use of Fair Trade products on US campuses. So maybe Fallon deserves another look as a late night host. Or maybe not...
