Dolly Parton Announces Jeni’s Ice Cream Flavor and Date the Sweet Treat Will Be Available

by Katie Maloney

Dolly Parton is so adorable, we could just eat her right up! And now fans can do just that with this new flavor of ice cream.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream announced earlier this month that they were teaming up with Dolly to release a new flavor of ice cream inspired by the country music legend. Parton also shared that some of the proceeds from ice cream purchases will go to her organization, Parton’s Imagination Library. The library program donates books to young children across the country. So what’s this new ice cream flavor all about? Recently, Dolly shared all the details we’ve been waiting for about the new flavor: Strawberry Pretzel Pie.

The container is a very Dolly light pink color with a cute drawing of the country star. And the strawberry pretzel pie flavor brings fans right back to their favorite childhood summer barbecues. The new flavor features layers of salty pretzel streusel, sweet and tangy cream cheese ice cream, and lipstick red strawberry sauce.

In a Tweet, Dolly shared a photo of herself holding a carton of ice cream. Along with the photo she wrote, “I’ve teamed up with @jenisicecreams to create my very own flavor in support of @dollyslibrary! Strawberry Pretzel Pie is available at Jeni’s April 8.”

Grab a Spoon, Your Dolly Ice Cream and Stream This Dolly Parton Special on Netflix

You know what goes great with a carton of Dolly Parton ice cream? A virtual Dolly Parton tribute concert! Netflix recently announced that it will be streaming the 2019 MusiCares concert honoring Dolly Parton. MusiCares is a non-profit organization established in 1989 by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Every year, they honor an artist who exemplifies their philanthropic values with the “Person of the Year” award. Last year, Parton took home the award. To honor all she does through her organizations and by simply just being her beautiful self, MusiCares threw her a concert. Chris Stapleton, Katy Perry, Willie Nelson, and other celebrities covered Dolly’s songs in her honor. Now, fans can watch the whole event on Netflix starting April 7th – exactly one day before the release of Dolly’s ice cream flavor. All your binge-watching needs in one go! So, grab a spoon and get ready for a day of Dolly.

Along with the trailer for the special, Netflix wrote, “In a star-studded evening of music and memories, a community of iconic performers honor Dolly Parton as the MusiCares Person of the Year.”
