Bob Weir might have sipped the electric kool-aid back in the day, but the Grateful Dead guitarist threw some serious frozen shade when asked about Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

The legendary jammer was in NYC when he ran into our photog ... who lobbed up a serious softball question: "What is the best Ben & Jerry's ice cream?"

The obvious answer would be to pay homage to his former band mate, Jerry Garcia and blurt out Cherry Garcia as quickly as possible. Right?

Didn't go down that way. Check it out ... 'cause Bob also dropped a shocker about tie-dye and guitar smashing. Brace yourselves, Deadheads ... this is kinda weir.
