London, July 17 : English pop/rock singer Sir Elton John has been given a "sweet" tribute by cool treat kings 'Ben and Jerry', who have created a new ice cream flavour in his honour.
The new flavour named the 'Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road' has been created to mark Elton's first ever concert in Vermont, scheduled to take place on July 21.
It has been described as "an outrageous symphony of decadent chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle and white chocolate chunks."
John, 61, will have been to all 50 United States when he plays there on Monday, and the proceeds will go to his Aids Foundation.
"I can't think of a more fun way to celebrate my visit," British tabloid The Sun quoted him as saying.
But the flavour is a limited edition only, and will only be sold in the state from 18-25 July. (08).
Sir Elton John joins Phish, Jerry Garcia and Dave Matthews who have all had Ben + Jerry flavours named after them. (ANI)
