Ben & Jerry’s: Clash of the Cones is the new Food Network competition show. The new show challenges ice cream makers to create new and outrageous flavors.

Competitors have to capture the essence of a celebrity or pop culture icon with a new ice cream flavor. The celebrity will be on hand to help inspire the Ice cream makers. The competitors use an ice cream lab on the Ben & Jerry’s factory grounds to make their concoction. After concocting their creations, the competitors hit the streets to have the public vote their favorite flavor. The winner from the public’s taste testing earns immunity from elimination. The loser gets sent home and the flavor gets buried in the Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard.

Ludacris is featured as one of the celebrity inspirations. The ice cream makers have to create flavors after the rappers favorite desserts, and making classic ice cream sandwich cookies from scratch.

Hosted by Molly Yeh, the show premieres with a 90-minute episode on August 16th at 9pm ET/PT.

The love and romance filled movie is part of the network’s annual “Summer Nights” programming event.

Synopsis:

Lauren (Reeser) is an established creator and ambassador of her wellness brand called The 27-Hour Day. Her mission is to give the best tips and tricks to make life’s daily chores and activities more efficient. But when an important meeting with her business idol goes awry, Lauren realizes she may need to step away to get some perspective. Foreign to the concept of taking a break (who can relate?), Lauren agrees to go to a mountain retreat. Upon arrival, she hands over all forms of electronics and tries to forget about work.

While there, she meets others – Heather, a tireless wedding planner, a couple trying to rekindle their marriage, and Roger, a bored retiree. Lauren also comes across retreat owner Jack (Walker) who can immediately tell she’s a workaholic from a big city. Jack is looking to expand his family business, not get involved with a guest, but there’s just something about Lauren. Over the course of the week in the calm setting of the Montana mountains, Lauren realizes she needs to reprioritize what’s important in her life as she finds herself beginning to fall for Jack – and wonders how life will be once she returns to New York and if Jack will follow.
