    Ben & Jerry's unveil "SNL"-inspired flavors: Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch and Lazy Sunday

    Gilly!!!! 

    Well, for once you've nothing to be "sorry" about.

    In celebration of "Saturday Night Live's" 40th anniversary, Ben & Jerry's unveiled the first two in a line of four "SNL" sketch-inspired flavors on Thursday: Lazy Sunday and Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch. 

    To match its namesake, Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch is a combination of chocolate and sweet cream ice creams with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and a marshmallow swirl.

    To honor Lazy Sunday's "dreamworld of magic" and adoration of cupcakes, the Vermont-based company added chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl to a base of a vanilla cake batter ice cream. 

    "Our fans have a great sense of humor and we share their affinity for the comic genius of 'Saturday Night Live,'" said Lisa Sholk, Ben & Jerry’s Marketing Manager. "We loved the challenge of creating ice cream personalities for those iconic sketches."

    Other than to announce the two remaining flavors will be released later in the year, Ben & Jerry's are keeping mum about which iconic "SNL" sketches they'll be based on. 

    The new "SNL" flavors will be available exclusively at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops across the U.S. and Canada. 

    Earlier this year the company upped its goo factor with a range of "core" ice cream flavors.
