In other news, the Grammy-award-winning artist has recently collaborated with Ben & Jerry’s for his very own ice cream flavor, Mint Chocolate Chance.
The flavor, which comes in both dairy and a non-dairy variety created with sunflower butter, provides a minty mouthful with fudgy brownie chunks instead of chocolate chips.
The mixture is inspired by Chance’s favorite dessert growing up — which was his mother’s brownies and mint ice cream.
“I’m so excited to have my own flavor of ice cream with Ben & Jerry’s,” Chance, 28, said in a statement. “I grew up with their ice cream as a kid so getting to create a new flavor brought back a lot of great memories.”
“It amazes me that no one thought to combine brownies and mint chocolate chip,” he added. “I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
But before you run to the store, you should know that the delicious Mint Chocolate Chance won’t hit freezers until the “first quarter” of 2022, and will retail between $4.99-$5.49 a pint.
And we should not that the ice cream doesn’t just exist for our pleasure, but also, to make the world a little better. A percentage of proceeds will go to Chance the Rapper’s non-profit, SocialWorks.
Founded in 2016, SocialWorks “aims to empower youth through the arts, education and civic engagement with programming that focuses on education, mental health, homelessness and performing and literary arts,” the brand said in a release.
The organization “directly impacts thousands of young people early while inspiring creativity, building dreams and advocating for youth success in all its forms.”
Oh and the brownies? They are crafted at Greyston Bakery in Yonkers, New York, which works to unlock the power of human potential through inclusive employment, one person at a time.
The charity element is a massive part of why Ben & Jerry’s wanted to work with Chance in the first place.
“Chance the Rapper is a tremendous talent and inspiration,” CEO Matthew McCarthy said. “Through his flavor we hope to inspire creativity in the next generation and to spread the word about SocialWorks in a delicious way.”
