Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is no stranger to the celebrity collaboration, teaming up with everyone from Tyler the Creator to President Joe Biden on flavors of the sweet stuff.

Now the local ice cream maker is partnering with the queen of country herself Ms. Dolly Parton on a new flavor – and doing it for a good cause.

Strawberry Pretzel Pie features layers of salty pretzel streusel and red strawberry sauce ribboned through sweet and tangy cream cheese ice cream. Sales of the flavor will benefit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a book gifting program that gives free books to children from birth to age five.

“Dolly Parton is the person we all want to be when we grow up: an unstoppable force for good with the power to bring people together—aka a walking, amplified embodiment of what Jeni’s works to be as a company,” the company said in an announcement about the flavor.

Strawberry Pretzel Pie will be a limited run flavor – so plan now to get a pint.

The flavor will drop on jenis.com at 12 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 8. For same-day eating, Jeni’s recommends hopping in line before scoop shops open on April 8. There’s six spots to score a Strawberry Pretzel Pint in Central Ohio, with scoop shops in North Market, Grandview, Short North, Dublin, Clintonville and Easton.

There’s a limit of two pints per purchase in-store and online, and the Dolly Parton Jeni’s flavor will not be available for delivery or pickup via the Jeni’s app.
