File this one under today’s most delicious news! Ice Cream company Ben & Jerry’s has announced two brand-new flavors that are based on famous ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketches.

Just in time for summer, Ben & Jerry’s has unveiled “Lazy Sunday” and “Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch,” two new multi-flavor ice cream creations that have our mouths watering! “Lazy Sunday” is based on the digital short starring Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell, of course. And “Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch” is based on Kristen Wiig‘s Gilly character, the girl who has her own theme song and always causes trouble.

Ben & Jerry’s New Flavors: Find Out Their Two SNL-Themed Varieties

“ICYMI: We unveiled the 1st of our batches, Lazy Sunday. Avail only at US scoop shops,” Ben & Jerry’s tweeted on June 18. The always-unpredictable ice cream company made the Saturday Night Live themed flavors to celebrate the weekly show’s 40th anniversary this year, according to The Huffington Post. The company will also announce two more SNL-inspired flavors later in 2014. 

The Lazy Sunday flavor is “vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl,” according to Ben & Jerry’s site. Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch is “chocolate and sweet cream ice creams with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and a chocolate swirl.” They both sound absolutely delicious! 

“The last time we partnered with SNL, the flavor caused quite a stir,” Eric Fredette, Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Guru, explains. “I think true SNL fans are going to love how we took the inspiration for what’s next. Saturday nights are about to get a little cooler.” 

The ‘SNL’ Skits That Inspired The Flavors — Revealed!

It makes sense that Lazy Sunday has cupcake pieces in it. In the famous SNL skit from 2006, Andy raps about his love for Magnolia cupcakes! You can watch the skit yourself here. And it’s no surprise that the Gilly flavor is full of unexpected elements. Kristen’s infamous character had seriously-frizzy hair, constantly smiled after pulling weird pranks and always said “sorry!” but never seemed to actually mean it. Watch a snippet of Gilly in action here.
