You are not going to want to wait to get your mouth around these balls.
"Trending WORLDWIDE!!! Not my balls. SCHWEDDY BALLS!!" Alec Baldwin tweeted last night, doing his darndest to get the word out about Ben & Jerry's new flavor, based—you guessed it—on one of the best Saturday Night Live sketches ever!
"For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy' would end up on my tombstone," Baldwin said in a statement announcing Schweddy Balls, the latest limited-edition concoction from the purveyors of Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Snack and Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream.
"Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry's, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won't go with me to the great beyond. It is immortalized here, right now, and it's an ice cream. Ben & Jerry's and Schweddy. Two great names in American dessert, together at last."
Added Ana Gasteyer, who loved how Schweddy's balls glistened: "As a person and a performer, I am a sucker for holiday balls. And I have no doubt this ice cream will cause many to scream 'good times.'"
So, what exactly goes into making Schweddy Balls?
Rum-laced vanilla ice cream and fudge-covered rum-and-malt balls, that's what.
Boy, it's going to be hard to resist those balls come Christmas.
