Tyra Banks and Lionel Richie are famous for their modeling and music careers, respectively, but they also collaborated on a new ice cream flavor that became part of Banks’ ice cream line, Smize Cream.
The flavor made its debut on Sept. 1, 2021, and includes a vanilla ice cream base, crumbled cookies, a caramel swirl, and hearts made of milk chocolate fudge. The name was inspired by Richie’s 1983 hit song, “All Night Long.”
Banks’ ice cream line sets itself apart by including a “surprize” in the carton, and in the case of the All Night Love flavor, it’s a “caramel-scotch cookie dough” confection.
“Smize” is a reference to a term Banks coined, which became famous on her reality show “America’s Next Top Model, which means smiling with your eyes.
In the below how-to video, Banks says one can “smize” by staring into the camera lens, keeping the face immobile, and thinking of something you desire to conjure an intense expression in the eyes.
