DMB got its Ben & Jerry’s flavor — who’s next?

The hippy-crunchy flavormeisters of Ben & Jerry’s have unveiled their latest celebrity-inspired ice cream: ”One Sweet Whirled,” a tribute to the countrified jammers of the Dave Matthews Band, will combine caramel and coffee ice creams with marshmallow and caramel swirls and coffee-flavored fudge chips. Come April, DMB’s delicacy will join an already distinguished pantheon of frozen treats named for hirsute tunesmiths that includes Cherry Garcia and Phish Food. Food for thought: Here are some musicians EW.com thinks also deserve their own flavors.
