Look Maggie! They're even naming ice cream after us!

With all the buzz about the rumored Stephen Colbert Ben & Jerry's flavor that was leaked to No Fact Zone last week, I couldn't help but think of some flavors the ice cream gurus could make just for Chicagoans. Regional delights could include Nepotism Neopolitan (a layered dessert comprised of three ice creams flavored with Daley's Irish Cream, Irish whiskey and Guinness), El Tracks (just like Moose Tracks, but in "Slow as Molasses" ice cream) or Rocky Road Construction.
