“Booty Bouncing Beignets” may soon be your favorite Ice Cream. That’s right, everybody’s favorite bounce artist just announced one of the more unique collaborations out there. Big Freedia & Ben & Jerry’s announced a “new partnership” which will kick off July 6.
In a press release, the company explained the partnership will benefit several non-profits in the city and will kick off at a launch party during the first week of July.
“Ben & Jerry’s is teaming up with the Queen of Bounce, Big Freedia for a day of music, food, and of course FREE ice cream, at Republic NOLA. We will be announcing a new partnership together that will be benefiting local non-profits, and did we mention it will be sweet? 100% of the proceeds will benefit No Kid Hungry LA, Liberty’s Kitchen, and Upturn Arts.”
In early February Freedia posted a photo indicating the desire to work with the ice cream company, but not many took it seriously. It looks like that post and some savvy marketing have led Big Freedia to an actual partnership with Ben & Jerry’s and we are here for it.
The event on July 6th will include an exclusive first listen of new Big Freedia track, “Chasing Rainbows,” and of course ice cream! Tickets are just $5 and are available now!
The Facebook post that announced the partnership doesn’t say that fans will be sampling “Booty Bouncing Beignets,” but we’ll keep our hopes up and our spoons ready.
