Jimmy Fallon’s newest award
Late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon will find out in about a week if he has won another Emmy Award, or maybe even two.
But until then, he can put a different one on his mantle, made entirely from Fruit Roll-Ups and Fruit by the Foot.
The Betty Crocker fruit flavored Snacks team created the colorful and tasty trophy for Fallon.
Fallon tweeted about it this week to his 6.4 million followers on Twitter, to show them what the trophy looked like.
Thanks to my pals at Fruit Roll Ups for the Emmy. This counts, right? instagr.am/p/PcNeP7vZ1h/

He also shared his photo with the 600,000+ fans on his show’s Facebook page.
The trophy was a thank-you gift of sorts for Fallon, for a skit on his August 17 program featuring Rep. Nancy Pelosi discussing Fruit Roll-Ups and Fruit by the Foot.
I’m a loyal viewer of Fallon’s show and I happened to be watching that night. It was fun to see!
Fallon is nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 23. One is for Best Variety Series, for “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” on NBC.
His other nomination is for Best Comedy Guest Actor for hosting the Christmas edition of “Saturday Night Live,” when he returned to the Weekend Update anchor desk, and played several characters, including Justin Bieber and Russell Brand.
Fallon won an Emmy in 2010 for his “Late Night” website.
Editor’s note: This isn’t the first time the fruit flavored snacks team has come up with something special. You may recall that In May, we wrote about how they sent former New York Knick Jeremy Lin a jersey.
