It’s only right that the coolest woman in the world has her own ice cream flavour


We know that everything Dolly Parton touches turns to gold, but even we didn’t know she could get an ice cream to sell for four figures.

That’s what happened after the iconic songstress released her own limited edition frozen treat over in the US.

Dolly, 75, teamed up with artisan company Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams to come up with her own Strawberry Pretzel Pie flavour, which is hailed as “a throwback to the triple-decker pie from the potlucks of our youths”.

Inevitably, once demand for the creation saw the Jeni’s website crash, tubs of the dessert popped up on eBay – in one case selling for a whopping $1,000.

The Strawberry Pretzel Pie is described as “sweet and salty, with timeless appeal, deep American roots, and makes you feel darn good”. In other words, it’s an “ode to the Queen of Country”.

It is made up of “layers of salty pretzel streusel, subtly sweet and effortlessly tangy cream cheese ice cream, and lipstick red strawberry sauce.”

Proceeds from sales of the ice cream will go to Dolly’s book donation programme the Imagination Library.

That is, if you can get your hands on a tub.

Shortly after the Strawberry Pretzel Pie was released, sweet-toothed fans sent Jeni’s site into meltdown, and staff were still working to rectify the issue three days later.

For anyone desperate to get their hands on a pint, they can visit eBay seller doralee26 and “buy it now” for almost 100 times its original price.

The item description claims that 80 percent of the sale will be donated to the Imagination Library.

But that would still leave doralee26 with a cool $200.

You can always try to bring the price down by making an offer

Anyone interested can pick-up locally from Pasadena, California, or the ice cream can be sent next day with dry ice.

But, bad luck for UK hopefuls: overseas shipping doesn’t appear to be an option.

We’ll just have to stick to our supermarket freezer section and enjoy Dolly’s sweet tones instead.
