Ben & Jerry's Unveils Schweddy Balls Ice Cream

JOHN CURRAN,Associated Press

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Ben & Jerry's is unveiling a new flavor, and it doesn't sound too tasty.

"Schweddy Balls" is an homage to an old "Saturday Night Live" skit featuring Alec Baldwin as bakery owner Pete Schweddy, whose unique holiday offerings included something called "Schweddy Balls."

Sean Greenwood, a spokesman for the Vermont ice cream maker, said Thursday that the company isn't worried about offending people with the name. He says one of the company's principles is to do fun things and that it fits in with that, just as it did with previous flavors like Karmel Sutra and Half Baked.

The new flavor is available at scoop shops and supermarkets. It consists of vanilla ice cream, rum, fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.

It sounds good and looks yummy, but the name is disgusting.

Re: Schweddy Balls

The name is from a skit that appeared more than a decade ago on “Saturday Night Live” has influenced “Schweddy Balls,”. There's some people who really does not like the name Schweddy Balls. I even read that a parents' group has inexorably gotten upset over the ice cream flavor. Resource for this article: Ben and Jerry’s Schweddy Balls peeves parents. Anyway I still love their ice creams no matter how they name it. Vanilla Ice cream with a hint of rum and loaded with fudge covered rum and malt balls, I will surely love it.
