schweddy balls

Introducing Ben and Jerry's newest flavor: Schweddy Balls! If I had a dime for every time I've heard that quote from SNL ...

According to Sean Greenwood, a spokesman for the ice cream maker: "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."  He also said 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 Karamel Sutra and Half Baked."

The new flavor consists of vanilla ice cream, rum, fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls. Rum? Yum. Happy Holidays indeed!
