d2d: Help me resurrect Festivus!

If you've ever made the mistake of asking me my favorite ice cream flavor, you've been privy to the tale of ecstasy/misery that is Festivus.

Festivus was a special holiday season ice cream that Ben and Jerry's made for the holiday season, 2001. It was cinnamon ice cream, with caramel swirls and pieces of gingerbread. It was amazing. Yes, WAS amazing. It was a B&J limited edition, and they stopped making it after the holiday season. I tasted perfection, and then had it denied to me.

But not for always. Ben and Jerry's is taking nominations to bring a flavor back from the graveyard, and I need it to be Festivus. Please go to http://www.benjerry.com/graveyard to help me bring back the world's best ice cream. They are taking nominations through April 30.

Thank you for your support.

HOLY SHIT!!!!

I've been bitching among my family and friends about how there's no more Festivus for years now!! It's like you read my mind!

I, too, know the horrors of having your favorite Ben and Jerry's flavor ripped from existence.

I had a love affair with Rainforest Crunch. It ended tragically. I've gone to the flavor graveyard and begged to have them bring it back, but no dice.

Uncanny Cashew is kind of similar to it, so it's my current favorite.

I never delighted in Festivus. It sounds mighty tasty.

I voted for ya! I can't say that I ever had it, but I can a least vote. But concerning the graveyard- my Sophomore year was definitely the Ka-berry Kaboom! year. Pop rocks in Ice cream - too much fun.

I also voted for Purple Passion Fruit Sorbet because it brings back memories of the Merrill Snack Store freshman year. And I told them that.

You can choose Other at the bottom of the list, and type the name in.

For you, I lie, "It is absolutely amazing...cinnamon ice cream, gingerbread, caramel???? This should not be in the graveyard. Something this wonderful should be enjoyed by all, all times of year--NOT just at Festivus!" And now I'm competitively hoping that Festivus wins...

I think they also called it Gingerbread. In the little blurb that appeared on the tombstone it said "also called Festivus"
