FP22 Stephen Colbert , Chicago Cubs – Topps Baseball Series 1
The Topps Company, the exclusive trading card partner of Major League Baseball, have released their annual baseball card set which includes fan favourites, superstars, up-and-coming rookies and the recent addition of popular First Pitch™ inserts.
Featured among the first pitch series, is none other than Donny Franks, Stephen Colbert’s hot dog vending alter ego. Franks, who threw the first pitch for the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, was featured in the segment ‘Everyone’s a Weiner When Stephen Visits Wrigley Field’ on the 22nd September, 2016 episode of the ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’.
Previously, Stephen Colbert threw the first pitch, or in this case pint of Americone Dream, to Jerry Greenfield (of Ben & Jerry’s) at a Charleston RiverDogs game on Saturday, 7th July, 2007.
Ben & Jerry’s have released an exciting new way for busy on the go ice cream lovers to ingest their favourite flavours without all the mess.
Similar to a Klondike Bar, their new Pint Slices feature four classic flavours: Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream covered in chocolate and individually wrapped in an easy-to-open pouch.
Boxes of Americone Dream feature “three vanilla ice cream bars with caramel swirls and fudge covered waffle cone pieces, covered in a dark chocolatey coating with waffle cone pieces.”
Speaking on the new release to Paste Magazine, Dena Wimette, Global Innovation Manager for Ben & Jerry’s, said “It took us years to perfect how to squeeze in all the chunks and swirls our fans have come to expect. Using top secret technology, we finally got it. Of course, with all those thick, rich ingredients, there was no room for a stick. It just didn’t fit.”
Pint Slices are now available in most Ben & Jerry’s scoop stores and will soon be available in grocery stores nationwide.
Billy Eichner announced via Twitter today, that Stephen Colbert will be the featured guest on the season five final of ‘Billy on the Street‘.
