My Ninja, Please! 9.28.11: Schweddy Balls Ice Cream

To celebrate the talented writers, crew and actors behind arguably television’s funniest television program, today, Ben & Jerry’s launched its newest limited-batch flavor, Schweddy Balls. The flavor is an ode to the classic "Saturday Night Live" sketch [viewable at] starring Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon, as hosts of the "Delicious Dish," a National Public Radio program parody, along with Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, the fictional owner of Season’s Eatings Bakery.

The legendary actor, comedian, and perennial favorite SNL host appreciates keeping the laughs going. "For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone," said Baldwin. "Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond." The flavor, available nationwide, features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls. The combination is a melding whose time has come, deadpanned Baldwin, "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." #read the source

Yes, my ninjas, I know it’s from Ben & Jerry’s.  Yes, ninja, I know they make their ice cream with fair trade vanilla.  Yes, my ninjas, I know it’s probably delicious.  Yes, ninja, I am aware that it comes from an old Alec Baldwin SNL shtick… but my ninjas, please, this is just NOT an ice cream a ninja would buy.
