SNL Schweddy Balls Now an Ice Cream Flavor [VIDEO]

Ben & Jerrys

Who doesn’t like the taste of Schweddy Balls?  Inspired from a Saturday Night Live Skit – Schweddy Balls is now a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavor.  The company  announced the new flavor will be joining the line up of ice cream flavors in a limited run.

Schweddy Balls are made of “vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.”

The idea of the flavor comes from one of the most popular, and funny, comedy skits played out on Saturday Night Live, with Alec Baldwin as the infamous Schweddy.

Alec Baldwin was the host that night and he appeared in a skit with Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer about National Public Radio (NPR) and how clueless some of the NPR radio hosts actually are.

In the skit , the NPR radio hosts are oohing and ahhing over Alec’s “Schweddy balls” which are actually a new holiday treat that his  character is touting on the show. The skit has disappeared, due to the nature of the double entendre, but was recently recreated with Betty White as host.  Ben & Jerry never forgot it. – hence the new flavor!
