Because you know there is always a secret ingredient.  Anyway, gross and over-priced.


MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Ben & Jerry’s has Schweddy Balls. Would you like a taste?

Chill out, it’s only the name of their new flavor.

Schweddy Balls ice cream is an homage to a 13-year-old “Saturday Night Live” skit featuring Alec Baldwin as bakery owner Pete Schweddy, whose unique holiday offerings included a delicacy called Schweddy balls.

The company’s not worried about offending people with the name, said spokesman Sean Greenwood.

“We’re the caring company,” Greenwood said Thursday. “We never want to do anything that is upsetting for people. We think it’s congruent with our values, in terms of having fun. One of our principles is ‘If it’s not fun, why do it?'”

Other flavors with edgy names — like Karamel Sutra and Half Baked — were irreverent double-entendres, too, he said.

True. But Schweddy Balls?
