Review: Ben & Jerry’s Jeremy Lin Ice Cream

Jeremy Lin Ben & Jerry's ice cream

Over the weekend, a Boston-area Ben & Jerry’s location created a new extremely limited edition flavor called, “Taste the Lin-Sanity.” Made with vanilla frozen yogurt, lychee honey swirls, and fortune cookie pieces, “Taste the Lin-Sanity” was only available for 48 hours.

Luck must have been on my side because I was able to pick up two pints before they ran out and plan to savor it for as long as possible. Like Lin himself, this flavor is unique. The frozen yogurt and honey strike a perfect balance – not too sweet, not too tart. The fortune cookie pieces and the sweet lychee are unexpected but comforting.

Ben & Jerry’s may produce more pints of “Taste the Lin-Sanity” but so far there are no guarantees. Follow the show on Twitter for further updates: @BenJerryBoston

    wow. lychee and fortune cookie pieces? really? when will ben + jerry’s make the King Lebron ice cream flavor? dark chocolate with fried chicken skin sprinkled with watermelon seeds. only boston could do something this racist…

  • K Dizzle

    Lol…Maaaaaaaan, this is borderline racist LOL
    Post 2 is partially right. If they made a fried chicken n watermelon seed flavor to commemorate any black athlete, Jesse and Al would be settin up the march LOL

  • Henry L.

    They left out the fly lice, hot and sour, eggrolls!!!

    Glad I’m not the only one that thinks this is racist. Wonder if the anchor from ESPN that got fired came up with the ingredients

    Yo man, I’m with the other cats here; this racial thing is getting out of CONTROL. Is this flavor real?? If this isn’t a (actually that would be kinda funny to make a fake Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and get everyone worked up over nothing) hoax, then WOW. LOL @ the Lebron flavor, can you imagine?? How is this any different?

  • SoulChorea

    Then again, the pre-game routine that Lin does with what’s-his-name doesn’t help at all…

    It should be had pieces of apple turnover instead of fortune cookie anyway,

    And at least it wasn’t banana flavor?

    UPDATE: Got in touch with the Ben & Jerry’s branch that made the ice cream. Here is their response to it being “racist”:

    We’ve made the pint a tribute to an athlete who has ties to our community here in Harvard Square. Our pint is made to excite our community and for people to enjoy. These custom pints are a little more expensive and once our limited batch is gone we’ll donate a portion of the proceeds to a local Cambridge charity. We hope it just creates some excitement for the Harvard basketball community and that people enjoy it and have fun eating it.

    ^how did that response address any of the people’s perception of there being a “racist” angle involved with the creation of the flavor?

  • polygonwindows

    i wouldn’t say this special edition ice cream is racist, hack i’m Taiwanese and i would like to taste the thing too. You guys do come up with some funny reactions though(@#2 and #4).

    hay at least Ben&J’s did a good job long as they don’t get Kim Kadarshian to promote the ice cream…

    Hopefully they’ll make a flavor for skinny white girls who play sports. Fuckin fat-free frozen yogurt with ceaser salad chunks and tofu bits.
