Penn Jillette to Launch Special “Celebrity Apprentice” Flavor of Ice Cream May 13
May 12, 2013 by VegasNews.com
During tonight’s broadcast of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino headliner Penn Jillette was named as one of two finalists left in the competition. For his final challenge, Penn has been tasked with creating his very own flavor of Walgreens Good & Delish super premium ice cream.
His creation, “Vanilla & Chocolate Magic Swirtle,” will be sold at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide beginning Monday, May 13.
Walgreens will award $100,000 to Opportunity Village, the Las Vegas-based charity for which Penn has been playing this season, if he sells more ice cream than his competitor. The ice cream sales will also help determine who is ultimately named the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, which would award an additional $250,000 to Opportunity Village.
To kick off the sale of his ice cream flavor, Penn will be joined by other Las Vegas headliners who appeared in support of Penn in tonight’s episode for an ice cream social, where fans will have the opportunity to sample and buy pints of his flavor.
