Ben & Jerry’s has created a limited run of Big Freedia’s Bouncing Beignets Ice Cream to honor the Queen of Bounce and her on-going support of local New Orleans non-profits; No Kid Hungry, Upturn Arts and Liberty’s Kitchen. The flavor- a vanilla ice cream with a bourbon caramel swirl, served atop a fresh beignet- was first concocted by Big Freedia herself via Instagram and was served at Republic, one of Big Freedia’s favorite NOLA hotspots.
“My team and I created our own flavor with a mock Ben & Jerry’s pint and posted it on my Instagram. We tagged Ben & Jerry’s, hoping they would see it. They did and the rest is history. This is so exciting for me! Food is my second love (after music), and to create an ice cream flavor of my own was so much fun.”
