Elton John has ice-cream made in his honour

Ben & Jerry create 'Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road'

Elton John has ice-cream made in his honour
Elton John has joined the likes of Phish and Jerry Garcia by having a special ice-cream created in his honour by Ben & Jerry’s.

‘Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road' has been formulated to celebrate Elton’s performance this month in Vermont, the state that Ben & Jerry’s comes from.

The flavour is said to be “an outrageous symphony of decadent chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle and white chocolate chunks” and proceeds from the sale of the dessert will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The show on Monday (July 21) will be the superstar’s first in the state, and is currently the only state out of all 50 in which he has yet to perform.

The limited edition flavour will only be available in Ben & Jerry’s Vermont Scoop Shops from July 18-25, as well as at the concert which takes place at Green Mountain State's Champlain Valley Expo Center.
