CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

First it was beer, and now...ice cream? That's right!

Graeter's Ice Cream is revealing a new flavor called Chunky Chunky Hippo Monday in support of the Cincinnati Zoo's beloved baby hippo, Fiona.

The new limited-edition flavor features a toffee ice cream base, salted roasted peanuts and milk chocolate with caramel truffles, according to Graeter's.

“Fiona continues to bring people together from all over the world in so many ways," said Chad Yelton, Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens Vice President of Marketing and Communications. "We appreciate the support from Graeter’s and are excited to share this Fiona-inspired ice cream flavor with the community that has rallied around her for the past six months."

Fiona was born prematurely Jan. 24, weighing just 29 pounds (13 kilograms). She overcame health scares and has recently been reunited with mom, Bibi, and dad, Henry with supervision by the zoo's care team.

There is no set date for when Fiona will join her parents full-time in the Hippo Cove outdoor pool.

A portion of the proceeds from each Fiona-inspired ice cream purchase will benefit the zoo. 

Chunky Chunky Hippo will be available for purchase in Graeter's Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton and Oxford locations.
