Ben & Jerry’s Confirms “Schweddy Balls” Ice Cream

Posted on: September 9th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

As we reported earlier this summer, Ben & Jerry’s is set to release a limited edition SNL-inspired flavor. “Schweddy Balls.” The new recipe was actually leaked on a NY1 segment interview with alumness Ana Gasteyer, but not officially confirmed by corporate headquarters until now. A new website landing page was simultaneously unveiled alongside yesterday’s announcement in the Daily News.

Ice cream fiends, here are the ingredients to “Schweddy Balls,” per the official homepage:

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.

And apparently, Mr. Schweddy himself (Alec Baldwin) is quite happy with the new addition.

“For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone,” said Alec Baldwin, according to a press release issued by the Vermont ice cream maker. “Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond.”
