Yup, the ice cream aisle just went R-rated. Ben & Jerry’s has announced a new limited-batch flavor named Schweddy Balls. Inside you’ll find vanilla ice cream loaded with fudge covered rum and milk chocolate malt balls (sounds like a winner to us).
The controversial name is ode to a Saturday Night Live sketch comedy in which Alec Baldwin plays Pete Schweddy, the owner of a holiday bakery who talks about his Schweddy balls — popcorn balls, cheese balls and rum balls.
Yeah, the thought of hearing children running through the grocery store, asking their parents for “Schweddy Balls”… it’s wrong, but we can’t help but laugh.
