Scotchy Scotch Scotch

Ben & Jerry’s

To taste-test “Scotchy Scotch Scotch,” the new, limited-edition Ben and Jerry’s flavor in honor of Anchorman star Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell)’s favorite drink, we asked the TIME.com newsroom to assemble:


Then we dug into the butterscotch ice cream with butterscotch swirls. Our general thoughts:


But actually:

• “Whoa, really strong butterscotch flavor in the beginning.”

• “Stings the nostrils…in a good way.”

• “Pretty damn scotchy.”

• “Too sweet”

• “Mmm…crunch.”

• “So the butterscotch ice cream is one scotch, butterscotch swirls are the second scotch…what’s the third kind of scotch?”

• “This needs scotch”

• “Well, you could put the ice cream in a bowl and pour scotch over it.”

We’ll leave that up to you. However, as much as you love the ice cream, don’t even think about taking one of these pints to the Anchorman exhibit at the Newseum next month because no outside food or beverages are allowed inside the building. You can always bring it to the pants party.
