How does coffee ice cream with Oreo cookies sound?

U.S. Olympic gold medalist Hannah Kearney has won some potentially influential support in her bid to have a Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor named after her — from no less than Ben and Jerry themselves.

The pair, who are in the British capital on a whirlwind business trip, said they were very proud of the freestyle skier, the first American to win gold at the Vancouver Olympics.

After outscoring home-country favorite Jenn Heil on the first night of competition, Kearney gave a shout out to Ben & Jerry's, which is based in her home state of Vermont, offering to do all the testing on a new flavor named after her.
