Rare, elusive and kind of a big deal, Ron Burgundy's Scotchy Scotch Scotch limited batch ice cream has been found in Las Vegas. Eater Vegas can confirm the Ben & Jerry's outpost within the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort is serving up the classy combo of butterscotch ice cream featuring ribbons of butterscotch swirl. A tie-in to the Dec. 18 release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues starring Will Ferrell, the flavor emulates the very favorite beverage of the movie's hero, news anchor Ron Burgundy. (The very favorite beverage is scotch.)
Ben & Jerry's own "Flavor Locator" indicates only three other Las Vegas locations offer the new sensation, but staff at the Miracle Mile store say they were under the impression they are the only location in the city to feature and promote this demonstrably sweet treat.
The strictly limited distribution has helped increase demand and staff declare the ice cream is currently selling like "hot cakes." Individual pints are not available, nor the pre-packaged Anchorman-themed containers. The "scoop shop" only serves cups or cones to go. Hot cakes are not included on the menu.
