“Schweddy Balls” Ice Cream: Would You Eat It?

Ben & Jerry known for their delectable ice cream, have a new flavor “Schweddy Balls.” But not everyone seems too thrilled about the ice cream’s title. Many grocery stores have not been selling the new flavor all because it’s name. The ice cream which consists of fudge-covered rum balls, get’s the name from a 1998 skit. Alec Baldwin, who plays a baker named Pete Schweddy says, “No one can resist my Schweddy ball.”

“The name is nothing but locker room humor that’s not appropriate for young children. The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive. Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket.”

Although the flavor is a limited edition, it’s become Ben & Jerry’s most popular limited-edition flavor. But stores not selling the ice cream may not be doing so because of the name. Some speculate some grocery stores may be supported of the One Million Moms group. The Mississippi-based organization of mom have been protesting the selling of “Schweddy Balls” since the release. Sounds like Ben & Jerry’s have a lot going on!

Would you eat this ice cream?

  1. People need to get a life. there are tv shows that are showing explicit scene early where young kids can watch. internet and cable are destroying kids young mind and this is what were cared about. i was looking for this ice cream and i could not find it. America is turning into China where free expression is getting restricted. wow i will keep on looking for this ice cream. sad

  2. Well said Stacy!.. They need to calm down and just put some Schweddy Balls in their mouth. It won’t hurt, unless you eat it to fast and get brain freeze, but other than that. It sounds like a good flavor. Ben and Jerry’s knows how to make some BOMBTASTIC ass ice cream!!!!

  3. I JUST Bought This Ice Cream B/c This Post. It Actually Tastes Pretty Good & I Don’t Even EAT Ice Cream. LOL.

  4. I agree there is worst things being said on tv and radio than “Schweddy Balls.” And I’m sure some people wouldn’t know how to pronounce this correctly if they saw it.

  5. I haven’t seen it in some stores, I guess the One Million Moms are on their job. But who cares about the name, seriously.

  6. Oh please ..lighten up…first of all, the ice cream contains rum…will you really give it to your kids??
    This one is for the adults so there is nothing wrong with the name. It’s one that makes you giggle. We all need that.
