GOOD GOLLY, MISS DOLLY! Dolly Parton has gone and done it again — she’s found another way to make us love her even more than we thought possible.
The Queen of Country (and the Moderna COVID vaccine) has partnered with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams to create a flavor that is just as sweet as she is.
The newest flavor for Jeni’s in collaboration with Dolly Parton is called Strawberry Pretzel Pie. The description of the ice cream is, “layers of salty pretzel streusel, subtly sweet and effortlessly tangy cream cheese ice cream, and lipstick red strawberry sauce.”
In my opinion, this sounds just like one of my favorite childhood desserts that has been served at many of our Southern family gatherings for decades, strawberry pretzel salad. Because you know in the South, a “salad” doesn’t really always mean that it’s a leafy green “salad.”
According to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, the Strawberry Pretzel Pie flavor will benefit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a book gifting program that gives free books to children from birth to age five.
The new flavor is available in shops and online starting April 8, 2021. There is a limit of 2 pints per online order and at Jeni’s scoop shops. Jeni’s has locations Austin, Dallas and Houston. Click here to find a scoop shop near you.
This flavor will also not be available for delivery or pickup via the Jeni’s app so you better hurry to get yours before it sells out!
