'Schweddy Balls' Flavor Ice Cream Hits Ben & Jerry's

Posted: Updated:

We have a feeling you "won't be able to resist" this new treat from Ben & Jerry's.

As was rumored earlier this summer, the Vermont ice cream company has turned Schweddy Balls, the fictional treat made famous by Alec Baldwin on "Saturday Night Live" in the 90s, its latest ice cream flavor.

Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls... Has a nice ring to it, right?

You're probably wondering what Schweddy Balls taste like. Well, according to the Ben & Jerry's website it's not exactly what Mr. Schweddy described on "The Delicious Dish," but close:

"Available in both pints and Scoop Shops, 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."

Since people are obviously skeptical that this is a joke, B&J confirmed via Twitter that it is real, and linked to a TwitPic photo of the carton.

Alec Baldwin is obviously proud to become part of an elite few who receive the honor of a Ben & Jerry's tribute flavor, and we're sure Molly Shannon, Anna Gasteyer and rest of "SNL" are too. They join fellow funny people Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Monty Python.
