What’s better than having your image plastered on the side of containers of your own Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor a la Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon?
Easy: Having a flavor named after your balls.
Alec Baldwin can lay claim to that honor now that the ice cream maker has unveiled its newest flavor: “Schweddy Balls,” an homage to a Saturday Night Live character Baldwin played back in the 1990s.
During the skit, bakery owner Pete Schweddy appeared on an NPR-like program to tout his balls – "popcorn balls, cheese balls, rum balls—you name it."
The Vermont ice cream maker began selling the flavor in its stores Thursday. It’s only a limited edition flavor, though, so SNL fans may want to act quickly to fulfill their “Schweddy Balls” cravings.
The flavor is made up of vanilla ice cream “with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls,” according to the company.
