Updated 9/20/11 – The full ingredient list of Ben & Jerry’s Schweddy Balls ice cream is now shown at the bottom of this post.

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream announced yesterday that “Schweddy Balls” ice cream is on its way to stores around the country. Schweddy Balls is a reference to the popular Saturday Night Live skit featuring Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon and guest host, Alec Baldwin. It is a parody on National Public Radio in which the actors continually refer to Pete Schweddy’s (Baldwin) dessert balls. The fun ensues when Shannon asks if she can touch Baldwin’s “balls” and then comments that she likes the way they smell.

According to the Ben & Jerry’s website, Schweddy Balls will be available in both pints and at their Scoop Shops. They describe it as:

“…this flavor is Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum and milk chocolate malt balls.”

I looked for the list of ingredients on their website, but could not find it yet (updated 9/20/11 – see below for list). We’ll post the list once we can confirm what’s in it. For information about Saturday Night Live visit www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live. The season premier on September 24th features Alec Baldwin!
