On Wednesday, Ben & Jerry’s released a new limited-batch flavor that may not immediately sound appetizing. The new flavor is “Schweddy Balls,” named after a skit done by Alec Baldwin, Molly Shannon, and Ana Gasteyer on SNL.
In the skit, Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer play two women hosting a National Public Radio show about food. Alec Baldwin’s character, Pete Schweddy, is the owner of a bakery named “Seasons Eatings.” Pete, who is a guest on the radio show, begins talking about all of the great treats he has, more specifically his balls. It is more hilarious when the two women begin making comments saying how they can’t wait to get their mouth around his balls.
This may seem rather controversial for the name of an ice cream flavor but Ben & Jerry’s is know for their fun and clever names such as “Half Baked” and “Karamel Sutra.” Although they have many unusual titles for their flavors, I’d have to say “Schweddy Balls” takes the cake.
You may be wondering what ingredients are included in this interesting flavor of ice cream. It is a mixture of vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum and milk chocolate balls.
This ice cream has brought the holiday season early. I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll be going out today to see what “Schweddy Balls” taste like. Go out and enjoy the limited-batch flavor by Ben & Jerry’s. I’m sure you’ll love the taste of those balls.Tags: Alec Baldwin, Ana Gasteyer, Ben & Jerry's, Molly Shannon, Schweddy Balls, SNL
