Ben & Jerry's Removes Fortune Cookies from "Taste the Linsanity" Flavor

Linsanity continues, this time as in the form of frozen yogurt . But the original flavor has already been modified.

Ben & Jerry's homage to the Knicks basketball sensation, Taste the Lin-Sanity, which was sold at the company's Harvard Square location in Boston, originally featured bits of fortune cookie.


"The Vermont-founded company has replaced the fortune cookies in its honey-swirl, Jeremy Lin-inspired variety with waffle cones."

If I'm being honest, though I absolutely would have tried the flavor with fortune cookie, the waffle cone revision sounds much, much better.

Said Ben & Jerry's of its attempt to honor the Harvard-educated NBA sensation,

"We are proud and honored to have Jeremy Lin hail from one of our fine, local universities and we are huge sports fans," Ben & Jerry's said in the news release. "Our intention was to create a flavor to honor Jeremy Lin's accomplishments and his meteoric rise in the NBA, and recognize that he was a local Harvard graduate.

"We try (to) demonstrate our commitment as a Boston-based, valued-led business and if we failed in this instance we offer our sincere apologies."

Well, then. This will be available at a store near me when?
