NPR Female Voice: “Oh, these Schweddy Balls really are cold. How long did you leave them out?”
NPR Male Voice: “Well, it’s been awhile… Sometimes if I don’t get them out every once in awhile, they start to turn blue.”
NPR Female Voice: “Blue Balls? Oh, honey… whenever I’m around, I can promise you will never have blue balls again! (giggles)”
NPR Male Voice: (Laughs gently)
Ben & Jerry’s ice cream has brought the famous Schweddy Balls skit to life with their newest flavor… you guessed it, Schweddy Balls! The basic ingredients are vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered rum and milk chocolate balls.
“We’ve always been a company that has had a sense of humor,” said Sean Greenwood about his Schweddy Balls (ice cream). “This is just plain silly.”
Yes it is… but I’m loving it. You’ll find it at about one-third of the stores that normally sell Ben & Jerry’s. The other two-thirds… Well, I guess you could just say, they don’t (didn’t) have the balls.
And in case you’ve forgot about this skit, starring Alec Baldwin, as Pete Schweddy, the host of Delicious Dish. You can check out the Ben & Jerry’s Facebook page, where you can send clips of the original broadcast to friends and family, or just click “play” below.
Enjoy your balls! And if you don’t have any of your own… see if you can borrow somebody else’s to enjoy!
