We are only four days on this side of the fond farewell of beloved geeky girl Liz Lemon, and our grief is palpable! What would the star of ‘30 Rock’ — which ended last week after a successful seven-year run — do? Indulge in something delicious, of course. So, in celebration of all things Liz Lemon, we are planning to partake in Ben & Jerry’s new, culturally relevant ice-cream flavor: Lemon Greek Yogurt with a Blueberry Lavender Swirl. It’s not exactly an ode to Lemon’s well documented love of junk foods but a tasty honor nonetheless. Look out for it in next couple of weeks.
