Innovative ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s has released a new flavor that we can’t wait to wrap our mouths around: Schweddy Balls.
The inspiration, of course, comes from a classic “Saturday Night Live” skit featuring Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon as boring NPR hosts of a program called “Delicious Dish.” Their guest, Pete Schweddy, played by Alec Baldwin, lets the ladies sample his very own Schweddy balls from Season’s Eatings Bakery. Unsurprisingly, the ladies are delighted by his Schweddy balls — and now we will be, too!
The new ice cream flavor is a limited batch so make sure you grab Schweddy Balls while you still can. Alec Baldwin says he is proud that Schweddy Balls can now be enjoyed by all who desire a taste.
“For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone,” said Baldwin. “Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond.”
Schweddy Balls features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum, fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls (why, what did you think Schweddy Balls would taste like?)
“It is immortalized here, right now, and it’s an ice cream,” said Baldwin. “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 get our hands on Schweddy Balls!
