In a nod to Alec Baldwin's memorable "Saturday Night Live" skit, Ben & Jerry's ice cream has announced the newest flavor on its roster -- Schweddy Balls. While that doesn't exactly send me running for the freezer aisle, the confection is made up of vanilla ice cream laced with fudge-covered, rum-flavored malt balls.
The skit features Baldwin in the role of Pete Schweddy, owner of a holiday bakery called Season's Eatings. Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer are NPR radio hosts interviewing him on the air. Pete promotes his bakery's popcorn balls, cheese balls, rum balls, and eponymous Schweddy balls. He insists, "no one can resist my Schweddy balls," and hilarity ensues.
