Yes, It’s True: Ben & Jerry’s Introduces ‘Schweddy Balls’ Ice Cream Flavor [Headlines]
Ben & Jerry's announced a new ice cream flavor named "Schweddy Balls," a joke from a SNL skit making fun of NPR.
We thought it would never happen. When we reported that comedianAna Gasteyer had spilled the beans on a new Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor based on a Saturday Night Live skit that pokes fun at NPR, we thought it would never happen.
But we were wrong. Ben & Jerry’s announced today that “Schweddy Balls” ice cream is on its way to store shelves across the country.
As we explained in June, “in case you don’t get the reference, the skit is a hilarious commentary on NPR’s, um, uniquely soothing sound. [Alec] Baldwin plays Pete Schweddy, a guest on a fake NPR show called Delicious Dish. Pete makes holiday treats like cheese balls, popcorn balls, rum balls and his famous Schweddy balls. The skit is an exercise in double entendres.”
