Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls 10-14-2011

Feelings: I finally got a hold of Ben & Jerry's controversial new flavor, Schweddy Balls. This limited edition flavor pays homage to Alec Baldwin's character, Pete Schweddy, on SNL from the late 90's. On the skit, he would say, "Nobody can resist my Schweddy balls," referring to the holiday treats he makes such as cheese balls, rum balls, and other famous Schweddy balls. I am more into Larry David and Mr. Show and not much of a fan of SNL, but I certainly could not resist myself from picking up Schweddy Balls.

Apparently, a conservative parent group called "One Million Moms" is threatening to boycott this new ice cream flavor with a double entendre. I am sure the kids of these one million moms will have a bright future in banking and live in suburbs with a white SUV blasting U2 with two kids and a dog all due to their parents protecting them from Schweddy Balls. I usually enjoy Ben & Jerry's, but this Schweddy Balls was rather bland and unexciting. The ice cream was consisted of vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls. I felt it needed to have stronger rum flavor or some sort of swirls in the vanilla ice cream.

Unfortunately, the glory of Schweddy did not live up to its name in the ice cream form. I somehow feel I can resist these Schweddy Balls. I will now go back to Phish Food, AmeriCone Dream and TJ's peanut butter cup ice cream.

JT and I recently tried "Clusterfluff" - It was amazing, but needed the chocolate sauce we put on it, IMO.
