Our Yumologists are huge American Idol fans, they are also huge fans of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.  Since the Yumologists tend to indulge in this sweet treat while tuning in to see if their favorite contestant made the cut,  we thought it would be fun to imagine each one of this year's Idols as a Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor.

Ashthon Jones
Ashton Jones = Coffee Heath Bar Crunch
Ashton's strong voice, quirky style and sweet demeanor gives her audience a jolt while satisfying their sweet tooth. Much like the coffee ice cream and sticky Heath bar pieces in Coffee Heath Bar Crunch.

Casey Abrams
Casey Abrams = Chubby Hubby
Casey has everything viewers love: a great voice, an awesome sense of humor and an added ingredient that we're still not quite sure of, but we bite into nonetheless because it tastes so good! Chubby Hubby combines the reliability of chocolate and peanut butter, but throws a delicious curve ball with salty pretzels inside.
Haley Reinhart
Haley Reinhart = Brownie Batter
Haley's rich and sultry voice, combined with the innocence of her youth, make her a powerhouse on stage and a reliable treat audiences can always count on for satisfaction, much like the ingredients in Brownie Batter.

Jacob Lusk
Jacob Lusk = Magic Brownies
Jacob's voice can launch from ordinary to extraordinary in no time at all. He has a unique devotion to songs from the past and traditional flavors like sweet cream, but Jacob puts his own magical spin on them and inevitable takes the audience to another dimension, much like the raspberry and chocolate do in Magic Brownies.
James Durbin
James Durbin = Chunky Monkey
A rockstar in the making, James is filled with unique ingredients that combine to form a rough & tumble mixture of strong flavors, just like the banana, walnuts and fudge in Chunky Monkey.

Karen Rodriguez
Karen Rodriguez = Cherry Garcia
Proud of her Latin roots, Karen's voice is an ideal homage to this sweet cherry base with strong chocolate flavors layered throughout it. Jerry Garcia and Cherry too would be proud!

Lauren Alaina         
Lauren Alaina = Cheesecake Brownie
Lauren's camera-friendly sense of humor makes her one of America's favorite contestants, but don't be fooled, behind that "cheesecake" smile lies a powerhouse of chocolaty talent that forms just the right balance of flavor.

Naima Adedapo
Naima Adedapo = Bonnaroo Buzz
Not quite sure what to expect from Naima, but intrigued by her eclectic appearance and smooth voice, audiences still can't quite decide if she's the right flavor for them. Perhaps this is why she is an ideal comparison to the new Bonnaroo Buzz that combines coffee and malt ice cream with toffee chunks and a whiskey caramel swirl.

Paul McDonald
Paul McDonald - Creme Brulee
The smooth, soothing quality to Paul's voice can be compared to the reliability of sweet custard, but his current take on compositions and the unique quality his voice lends to songs, offers just the right amount of a sweet crunch to make him stand out from the pack.

Pia Toscano
Pia Toscano = Cinnamon Buns
Pia is a powerhouse of two desserts packed in one. Beautiful to watch and even more beautiful to listen to, Pia offers just the right amount of spice and substance to keep her audience on the edge of their seats.

Scotty McCreery
Scotty McCreery = Boston Cream Pie
Scotty may not be for everyone, but those that love him are truly devoted. Rich and creamy with a layer of chocolaty depth, Scotty's voice is thick with all the makings of a country star.

Stefano Langone
Stefano Langone = Dublin Mudslide
Stefano has proven he's a fighter and in it to win it at this point. He'll play by the rules, but he's got what it takes to surprise his audience when it counts. The Irish cream liquor, chocolate chip cookies and coffee fudge swirl in Dublin Mudslide is an ideal combination for Stefano's voice and personality.

Thia Megia
Thia Megia = Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
As sweet and innocent as vanilla ice cream, Thia's presence on stage takes her audience back to the days of their childhood. The punch lies in Thia's ability to hang with the big kids. Don't be fooled by the vanilla ice cream appearance, when it comes to this competition Thia packs as much punch as the chocolate chip cookie dough America knows and loves.
