Ron Swanson, television's manliest man, has been honored with a Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor called 'Ron Swanson's All the Bacon and Eggs You Have.' Sure, this flavor doesn't really exist, but it's still fun as heck to see a TV character's popularity spawning frozen treats.

Fans of NBC's Parks and Recreation will know that Mr. Swanson is a food aficionado; the only problem is that all of his favorite foods are high in calories and cholesterol. Now add to that his very own ice cream and the physical well-being of Ron may be in danger.

As Ben & Jerry's explains, the 'Ron Swanson's All the Bacon and Eggs You Have' ice cream is a, "Scotch Flavored Ice Cream with All the Bacon and Eggs We Had."
