Looking for a new delicious flavor to satisfy your sweet tooth? Try some Schweddy Balls!
For realz! Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream has announced their latest creation, which is a homage to the HIGHlarious Saturday Night Live sketch featuring Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy.
Despite the goofy name (or downright disgusting to some), Schweddy Balls sounds pretty tasty! The flavor consists of vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered rum and malt balls. Yum!
Ben & Jerry's admits the name is startling, but doesn't think it will upset any fans, as a spokesman said:
"The name is irreverent, but we've always been about having some irreverence and having some fun … We're not trying to offend people. Our fans get the humor."
Alec Baldwin sounds like he couldn't more thrilled about the tribute to his iconic character either, saying:
"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.”
We don't know about you, but we can't wait to have Schweddy Balls melting in our mouth! Don't wait too long to try it though because it will only be in the freezers on a limited run for about 3 or 4 months!
