Chunky Dunky: Don’t swallow too soon. 12 seconds in your mouth is ideal.

I’m not sure exercising and eating pints of ice cream necessarily go hand-in-hand, but here you go.

Nike and Ben & Jerry’s have teamed up to make a SHOE. It’s called the Nike SB Dunk Low x Ben & Jerry’s . . . or the “Chunky Dunky.” . . . and they started showing up in stores over the weekend.

The shoes basically look like a pint of Ben & Jerry’s on your feet. They have the bright blue, green, and yellow colors . . . plus the black and white cow print all over.

And if you want a pair . . . well, good luck. They go on sale online today but they’re expected to sell out immediately . . . and some people who managed to grab a pair at a store for $100 are reselling them for more than $1,300.

The first day of summer isn’t until June 20th. But yesterday was the unofficial start. So let’s talk ICE CREAM . . . and how to make it taste even better.

An expert in “sensory science” came up with a seven-step process that’s supposed to give you the ideal ice cream eating experience. The one downside is it takes longer. But if you’re REALLY serious about your ice cream, here are the steps . . .

  1. Take it out of the freezer and let it defrost for about 15 minutes. When it’s too cold, the aroma molecules don’t release. And smell plays a huge role in how things taste.
  2. Don’t take too big of a bite. Half a teaspoon per bite is ideal.
  3. Place the spoon upside down in your mouth, so the ice cream hits your tongue.
  4. Roll the ice cream around in your mouth, and pay attention to how the smooth, creamy texture feels.
  5. Breathe in through your mouth while the ice cream is in there. The air passing over it helps it hit more of your taste buds.
  6. Don’t swallow too soon. 12 seconds in your mouth is ideal.
  7. Repeat with each bite to build up a, quote, “full ice cream taste profile.”

Magnesium Citrate

The TOM BRADY Tampa Bay Follies continue. First he got kicked out of a closed park where he was trying to practice . . . and now he’s walking into random people’s houses.

NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation is returning to prime time with a one-off, scripted reunion special next week. Amy Poehler will be joined by original cast members Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari, Retta and Jim O’Heir on Thursday, April 30 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.

At one time or another, we’ve probably all wanted to cause FRED DURST grievous bodily harm. But EDDIE VAN HALEN came close to actually doing it. That’s according to a new book about Eddie that’s out now.

Supposedly, the two met at a party, and someone suggested they jam together. Durst joked that it would be, quote, “The greatest guitar player ever [playing] with the worst band ever.” But Eddie was into it.

So the jam went down. But it ended early because Eddie got mad that people were smoking pot . . . and he left without any of his gear.

He tried to get in touch with Fred to get his stuff back, but after 24 hours of not hearing back, he drove to his house. With a GUN.

The author says that Eddie told him, quote, “That [A-hole] answered the door. I put my gun to that stupid [effing] red hat of his, and I said, ‘Where’s my [stuff], mother[effer]?'”

Needless to say, Eddie got his gear back.

Tom’s Tinder Profile Update with Single In The Springs

In today’s episode, our friends from SingleInTheSprings.com help Tom Rose improve his online dating profile! Catch them on the show at the 34:25 minute mark of today’s podcast.

If there’s one sauce McDonald’s fans can’t seem to get enough of, it’s the Szechuan Sauce. As we previously told you, the condiment first came out as a promo with the movie “Mulan” way back in 1998 and fans of the show “Rick and Morty” were thrilled when Mickey D’s brought it back in 2017. But the demand was high and the supply was low, so people were desperate to get their hands on some, even paying more than $15-thousand for the sauce on eBay.

Well now Szechuan Sauce lovers have the chance to get some again, but they’ll have to head to New Zealand to try. McDonald’s locations there are selling 200-thousand packets of it and that’s the only place in the world where it’s available. McDonald’s New Zealand Managing Director David Howse explains, “We wanted to give Kiwis the chance to try one of the rarest sauces in the world.”

Meanwhile back in here ‘Merica

Have you always wanted to wake up to the smell of chicken wings? Well, now’s your chance. In honor of March Madness, Buffalo Wild Wings is offering customers a chance to live inside one of their Chicago restaurants.

Sports fans are bound to “live” inside the restaurant anyway during March Madness, so why not be able to stay overnight for the first two days? All you have to do is enter to win their new “BnB-Dubs” contest by sharing a video on Instagram or Twitter about why you’re “the ultimate March Madness fan.”

The winners will be announced on Selection Sunday, March 15th – and you can bring a guest, too. The room will be decked out with two sets of bunk beds, flat-screen TVs and custom robes and slippers. 

Millennials and Gen Z’ers are feeling “hashtag blessed” today . . . at least the ones who love alcoholic seltzer water. Because White Claw just released THREE new flavors. The new flavors are lemon . . . watermelon . . . and tangerine. They hit stores yesterday. So they now have eight flavors total.

The five they already had are black cherry, mango, grapefruit, lime, and raspberry. And they also have one non-flavored version called “Pure” that’s supposed to taste like a vodka soda.

Meanwhile, Starbucks announced it’s suspending its bring-your-own-cup program. That’s the one that gives you 10 cents off if you show up with a cup that’s reusable. They’re worried people with the virus might get other people sick, including their employees. So if you show up with a reusable mug, they won’t fill it. But you will still get the 10-cent discount.

It’s not clear how long they’re suspending it, but they say they’re optimistic it will be a temporary situation.

Brands have to be hypersensitive now to make sure they don’t accidentally offend people. So it must be extra frustrating when something like this happens . . .

Puma has been selling a line of sneakers called “Storm Adrenaline.” And now they’re all over social media . . . because people think they look like HITLER. (???) If you look at them from the top down, there’s some trim around the toe that resembles his hair . . . and some trim around the laces that looks like his mustache in versions where the trim is black.

It’s the kind of thing you’d never notice. But once you see it . . . it DOES kind of look like Hitler.

Puma’s been selling them for a while, so a lot of people already own a pair. And it’s probably just an unfortunate coincidence.

But some people think it was intentional . . . and the name “Storm Adrenaline” is a nod to the Nazi Storm Troopers from World War Two.

We also talk to Meagan Thomas from SingleInTheSprings.com! Single in the Springs is a podcast by Meagan Thomas and Madeline Hoeppner about relationships, dating, and single life in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Both women have been on their fair share of bad dates, not to mention their own mess-ups. While dating can be both fun and a nightmare, we’re not in it alone.

Whether you’re with your person, looking for Mr.Right, or just need a reason to laugh, they’ve got you.

It’s Girl Scout cookie time again and the most excited scout around may be Ronnie Backenstoe, who first started selling cookies back in 1932. She joined the Girl Scouts when she was 10 and now at 98, she’s still thrilled to be a part of it.

It’s Valentine’s Day and perhaps you got a card. But we’re betting that it isn’t similar to anything on today’s list of The 10 Top Rejected Valentine’s Day Cards.

Jaw Breaker

Peppermint Patty Day! Henry C. Kessler and his York Cone Company, which was based in Pennsylvania, originally produced ice cream cones, and they’re responsible for the delicious invention the York Peppermint Pattie in 1940.

“Nails on a chalkboard” is the classic sound everyone hates. But when’s the last time you even SAW a chalkboard? Yester we asked people here at iHeartRadio to name more common sounds that make them cringe.

She works hard for the money. That is certainly true of one Dallas stripper who fell 20 feet while working a stripper pole and ended up plunging 20 feet to the floor while working at the XTC Cabaret Club in Dallas. She suffered a broken jaw, but the true pro she is got up and kept twerking.

There’s an 82-year-old guy named Ian Trainer in Liverpool, England. He doesn’t hear so well, so when he listens to his classical music, he BLASTS it.
