Schweddy Balls – Ben And Jerry’s New Ice Cream Flavor
Yes, it's real! Ben and Jerry's has put out an ice cream flavor called "Schweddy Balls". While the name of it might not be too appealing at first, keep in mind that the name comes from the hilarious and classic Saturday Night Live skit with Alec Baldwin back in 1998. The flavor tastes like
vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and will have fudge covered rum balls as well as milk chocolate malt balls. According to newsfeedtime.com Alec Baldwin even put his two cents in on the new flavor.
Alec Baldwin, who will be hosting this year's season premiere on Sept. 24, had this to say via a press release from Ben & Jerry's: "For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy' would end up on my tombstone. Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry's, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won't go with me to the great beyond. It is immortalized here, right now, and it's an ice cream. Ben & Jerry's and Schweddy. Two great names in American dessert, together at last.”
So the question is...Will you try their Schweddy Balls?
And for a kicker...here's where the name came from.
