Presumably both Ben and Jerry agree this is a flavor you will not be able to resist, naming the new flavor after a Saturday Night Live bit that featured Alec Baldwin as deadpan confectioner Pete Shweddy who often appeared on a public access program called “The Delicious Dish”.
Here is an excerpt from the oft-run sketch:
Teri Rialto: Can I touch your Balls.
Pete Schweddy: Go ahead. But be careful, they’re very delicate.
Margeret Jo McCullen: Wow. I can’t wait to get my mouth around his Balls.
Teri Rialto: [ sniffing ] Ooh.. I like the way your Balls smell..
Pete Schweddy: Do whatever you want to, ladies. My Balls are here for your pleasure.
Margeret Jo McCullen: [ chewing ] Wow, Pete.. I have to say – your Balls are so tender..
Pete Schweddy: Well, there’s no beating my Balls. They’re made from a secret Schweddy Family recipe. No one can resist my Schweddy Balls.
Available in both pints and Scoop Shops, this flavor is Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum and milk chocolate malt balls.
