Jeni’s And Dolly Parton Have Teamed Up To Create A Secret Ice Cream Flavor

Last updated:

Good news folks. Two icons are teaming up for something delicious.

Last week, Jeni’s teased that they may have a new collaboration on the horizon on Instagram. Then earlier this week, an Instagram mosaic revealed who exactly that collaboration would be with.

The one… the only… Dolly Parton. The queen of country is an absolute legend. Not just because she’s one of the greatest songwriters of all time, but also because she is a fantastic human who has devoted her life to making the world a better place.

There’s a list a mile long of all the good things Dolly has done for us, but most recently, she made headlines for donating $1,000,000 to help fund COVID-19 research.

“My longtime friend Dr. Naji Abumrad, who’s been involved in research at Vanderbilt for many years, informed me that they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure,” Parton tweeted in April, encouraging we the fans to also make a donation.

Basically, Dolly is the cream of the crop, and now she’s teamed up for something delicious with Jeni’s and we don’t deserve it, but we should all enjoy it.

Strawberry Pretzel Pie is Jeni’s ode to the Queen of Country and a throwback to the triple-decker pie from the potlucks of our youths. Layers of salty pretzel streusel, subtly sweet and effortlessly tangy cream cheese ice cream, and lipstick red strawberry sauce.

Strawberry Pretzel Pie will be available by the scoop or pint in scoop shops (at open) and online for nationwide delivery (at noon ET) starting April 8.

The new flavor will benefit Dolly’s Imagination Library, a book gifting program that gives free books to children from birth to age five.

Jeni’s 2021 flavor launches have sold out in a matter of days, looking at you Everything Bagel ice cream, so if you’re even remotely considering ordering this ice cream (and let’s be honest, of course you are) you better not sleep on your chance. You can sign up here to get more details.
