Make it a double. Scoop, that is.

Inspired by the favorite libation of Anchorman‘s Ron Burgundy, Ben & Jerry’s has introduced a non-alcoholic, limited-batch butterscotch ice cream with butterscotch-swirl ribbons called Scotchy Scotch Scotch.

The creamy dessert—which arrives on store shelves in the next few weeks but is currently available at select Ben & Jerry’s shops across the country—is a tasty tie-in with the sequel, Anchorman, the Legend Continues, scheduled for release December 20. (You can check out the hilarious trailer below.)

In the 2004 movie, the fictional newsman famously uttered, “Scotchy Scotch Scotch, here it goes down, down into my belly…” whenever it was drink time. Which was often.

The new flavor was officially unveiled on Tuesday at New York City’s Pier 36 with a performance by Nutty, the waterskiing squirrel who appeared in the first Anchorman film.

Willing to give it a try? As Ron Burgundy might say after you’ve had a few licks, “Don’t act like you’re not impressed.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
