New Ben & Jerry’s Bob Marley Ice Cream Won’t Get You High, Probably Tastes Great High Though

bob-marley-ice-cream

That’s a pretty damn misleading name there, Ben & Jerry’s. “Satisfy My Bowl” is the BJ’s newest special edition ice cream flavor, inspired by the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley’s Legend album and song titled “Satisfy My Soul.” It also, despite any connotations to the contrary, doesn’t contain a lick of THC.

Rather, it’s a mashup of banana ice cream, caramel and cookie swirls, and chocolate peace signs —presumably because bananas are tropical? Or because cannabis-laced caramels, chocolates, and cookies are surprisingly easy to make?

Currently, the flavor is only available in the UK, though a petition has been going around to bring it stateside. Proceeds go to the 1LoveFoundtion and Partners for Youth Empowerment.

Tegan and Quinoa: Whole Foods Now Selling Vinyl Records In Store

Why do hipsters do anything? Why do they buy record players when they already have iPhones? Why do they wear t-shirts for books they’ve never read and bands they’ve never even heard of? We could keep asking forever, but we’re also willing to bet if we had that much excess disposable income, we’d probably be just as nauseatingly #cultured too.

Following the footsteps as such other hipster bait retailers as Urban Outfitters and Starbucks, Whole Foods has just rolled out record stores inside five Southern California locations out of the chain’s 340.

“This launch isn’t just about stocking our shelves with something new and different,” Mike Bowen, Whole Foods’ executive coordinator, said in a press release. “— it’s about listening to our shoppers and giving them access to the things they want — whether it’s their favorite cheese or their favorite way to enjoy music.”

According to TIME, the artists available include Frank Sinatra, Daft Punk, the Rolling Stones, Bob Marley and Tegan and Sara, among others – more than half of which, yes, sue us, we ourselves happen to like listening to from time to time. But then again, we work in news, so we’ll just be over here snacking on Taco Bell and listening to KROQ.
