Dolly Parton and Jeni's Ice Cream Made a New Flavour

We'd Eat Dolly Parton's Strawberry Pretzel Pie Ice Cream From 9 to 5 and Beyond

As if her résumé wasn't already impressive enough, the Queen of Country, aka Dolly Parton, has added "ice cream maker" to her long list of accomplishments. The singer teamed up with Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams to create a brand-new limited-edition flavour, and it's just as sweet as you might expect. Named Strawberry Pretzel Pie, this new creation is "sweet and salty, with timeless appeal, deep American roots, and makes you feel good," according to the brand. It features layers of crunchy pretzel streusel, rich cream-cheese ice cream, and a red-hot strawberry sauce that's intertwined into every bite. The supersweet collaboration is an ode to Dolly for her hard work, dedication to helping others, and inspiring legacy that she's still living out. And the best part is, the proceeds from the sales of the new dessert will benefit Dolly's Imagination Library, which is a book-gifting program that donates free books to children ages 5 and under — meaning not only do you get to eat ice cream, but you also get to help those in need while you're at it.

The mouthwatering new strawberry pie flavour will hit stores April 8 and will also be available online for nationwide delivery with a limit of two pints per purchase. But be warned, because only about 10,000 pints of the limited-time flavour were made, and they're expected to sell out fast. Fans of Dolly — as well as anyone with a sweet tooth — are counting down the days until this collaboration finally drops into stores. With a flavour this delicious, it only makes sense as to why someone as iconic as Dolly is behind it.

On April 8, head to your local Jeni's to taste-test the strawberry-infused treat or get a pint delivered right to your door so you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own kitchen. Thanks, Dolly, for creating the sweetest collab of all!
