TODAY hosts Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones have forgotten how to use their words while snacking on a new ice cream flavor.
The hosts had a taste test during a recent POPStart segment.

Jeni’s Spendid Ice Cream released a limited edition flavor based on the Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.
The Today hosts dug into a pint of the “Biscuits with the Boss” flavor, which combines shortbread cookies and buttery sweet cream ice cream as well as sea salt.
As the hosts tasted the ice cream, they were immediately at a loss for words.
“Oh my God…ohhh. Oh,” said Al, losing himself in the flavor.
Sheinelle was equally excited, as she stammered: “Wait a minute. Wait.”
They traded off “mmms” and other exclamations.
Carson Daly, watching his co-hosts eat the ice cream, encouraged them to tell viewers what they were tasting.
He exclaimed: “Describe it! This is television!”
Sheinelle did her best to explain why she enjoyed the ice cream: “Imagine the yummy parts of the shortbread.”
Al agreed: “The base is fantastic.”
The hosts couldn’t get over how much they loved the ice cream flavor.
WORKING TOO HARD?
Meanwhile, Al returned to work in full force despite fan concerns that he should take it slow after his health complications last year.
The Today star has not held back with appearances on several different news programs in recent weeks.
Now fans have begged Al, 68, to take it easy after he shared behind-the-scenes footage from NBC Nightly News.
The TV personality took to his Instagram feed on Thursday night to give his followers a weather update.
The meteorologist filmed selfie-style as he walked through the backstage area of NBC studios in New York.
Al wore a plaid suit, gold tie, and matching gold flower pin as he explained current conditions to his fans.
“Well good evening everybody, we are at studio 1A and getting ready for NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
“Lester is getting ready for the broadcast, got a lot going on today from the climate unit. We are going to be talking about tornado watches, there are tornado warnings going on right now, and we’ve got winter weather,” he explained.
“There’s going to be a very intense line of heavy snow stretching from the Great Lakes into New England.”
Al then panned the camera to the radar screen, saying: “Oh you can see right now, there’s the radar. We have several warnings going on right now, so a very very volatile situation.”
The beloved weatherman then showed off some of his co-workers manning the teleprompter ahead of the broadcast.
“One more look at Lester Holt from behind, it’s pretty good. Bye-bye,” he added.
Al captioned his post: “The latest on the severe weather and heavy snowfall across the country coming up on @nbcnightlynews with @lesterholtnbc.”
But fans were concerned that the journalist is taking on too much work during his recovery from his dangerous health issues late last year.
“You work a lot Al,” one admitted.
“Love seeing you, al! So glad you are feeling better,” a second wrote.
“You look awesome… so happy to see you laughing and happy again,” a third gushed.
A fourth claimed: “So wonderful to see and hear you,” while a fifth said: “Thankful for your recovery!”
“Thank you for your work. I grew up watching you. You were so awesome,” a final noted.
CAUSE FOR CONCERN?
Fans have feared for the TV star’s health as he returns to his busy schedule after fighting off blood clots over the holiday season.
Earlier this week, Al sparked concern from fans who caught him appearing to struggle during a live fitness segment.
The beloved Today weatherman did a series of exercises with a fitness instructor during Wednesday’s broadcast.
He was joined by health coach Stephanie Mansour to present a segment on the daily steps people can take to improve their health.
Stephanie advised slow walking followed by fast walking and marched around the set, with Al in tow.
The presenter seemed to slow down and struggle to keep up as the fitness instructor switched to rapid walking.
She then took him and a show guest through doing slow squats and standing on tiptoes.
One viewer claimed Al looked like he was unsteady during the routine.
They tweeted: “He’s seriously struggling can someone get him a chair!”
Another added: “Take it easy Al!”
