Newest flavor Sept 2011Update: Click here to read our Schweddy Balls review

I’m an avid watcher of Saturday Night Live and my favorite skit of all time is Schweddy Balls. If you’ve never seen the skit because you’re too young or you think SNL was better during the (insert former cast member here)-era, you can watch the clip below (unless you live in a country outside of the US because Hulu clips don’t play outside of the US).

For those who can’t watch the clip, the sketch stars Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon, as hosts of the “Delicious Dish,” a National Public Radio program parody, along with Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, the fictional owner of Season’s Eatings Bakery.

To honor Saturday Night Live and the greatness of that skit, Ben & Jerry’s has launched a new limited edition flavor called, you guessed it, Schweddy Balls.

The new Schweddy Balls flavor features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.

A 1/2 cup serving has 270 calories, 15 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 65 milligrams of sodium, 31 grams of carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fiber, 26 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.

The newest Ben & Jerry’s limited-batch flavor is currently available at participating Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops across the country and at supermarkets nationwide while supplies last.

  4. Michael says:

    If Ben & Jerry’s was too cowardly to continue using the name Clusterfluff, renaming it “What a Cluster,” it surprises me that they would use a name that sounds like moist testicles.

  5. Jonny says:

    Ben and Jerry making the rounds on radio shows and talk shows to promote this. Unfortunately, this is real. And quite pathetic.

  6. Ryan says:

    I am suing Ben and Jerrys, I have rolling my Shweddy balls in Ice cream for years.

  7. Lot-O-Choc says:

  8. Mike N. says:

    I can’t wait for Sonic’s limited edition Schweddy Weiner!

  9. Zachary Jacob Zblewski says:

    I wonder when they’re going to come out with a “Betty White’s Dusty Muffin” limited edition flavor.

  10. Alison says:

    The vanilla ice cream is very good but I found the hint of rum to basically be non-existant. However, the rum balls have a very good, strong rum flavor. The malt balts are OK.
