Big Bad Voodoo Daddy plays the Hollywood Bowl tonight | Photo via their MySpace profile

Does Elton John taste good? hrmmm. How about his songs? Ben & Jerry's have a new flavor to honor them man himself. "Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road" is "an outrageous symphony of decadent chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle and white chocolate chunks." As good or bad as that sounds, Los Angeles won't be getting any. It's only available in Vermont. Sad.
