Ben & Jerry’s is honoring their Vermont brethren once again with a second Phish-themed flavor, the limited-edition “Freezer Reprise,” named after the band’s encore staple “Tweezer Reprise.” The flavor follows the company’s first tribute to the quartet, “Phish Food,” which launched in 1997.
“Freezer Reprise” comes just ahead of Phish’s much-anticipated 13-night Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Garden, which kicks off July 21. The band’s summer tour also opens up tomorrow, July 14, in Chicago.
In honor of the Baker’s Dozen theme, “Freezer Reprise” is described by B&J’s as “sweet cream ice cream with a vanilla glaze, chocolate donut swirl, chocolate donut pieces, and fudge fish.” The flavor will be available for a limited time, beginning at an opening-night event just outside MSG and at Burlington, VT’s Three Needs Taproom & Brewery on the run’s final night, August 6.
B&J’s has also teamed with longtime Phish-collaborating artist Jim Pollack to create a limited edition t-shirt, which will be available at the WaterWheel Foundation’s setup inside MSG during the run and on B&J’s website. All proceeds from the t-shirt sales go to WaterWheel.
In addition, B&J’s is offering fans a chance to win tickets to the final August 6 show at MSG, for those who can correctly guess the opening song to the July 21 performance.
