Remember the recently released Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor called Schweddy Balls? The Morning Spew posted about it here. Well, the group One Million Moms is organizing a letter writing campaign to Ben & Jerry’s asking them to immediately stop producing the nasty flavor. The group is also asking Ben & Jerry’s to refrain from creating additional vulgar named flavors or they will boycott their products.
I think their request is perfectly acceptable, but I really do not know anyone who buys Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. The Moms might want to try writing letters to their supermarkets, as I think they would be more responsive to Moms With Grocery Money.

Ben & Jerry’s announced their newest ice cream flavor which sounds anything but appealing.
Schweddy Balls is the best they could come up with. 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.
The name originated from a Saturday Night Live skit featuring Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, owner
of a holiday bakery called Season’s Eatings. “There are lots of great treats
this time of year,” Schweddy says. “Zucchini bread, fruitcake, but the thing I
most like to bring out at this time of the year are my balls.”
He then explains that he sells popcorn balls, cheese balls, rum balls—balls for every
taste—and the ball puns proceed for about four minutes. Ben & Jerry’s chose
to go with fudge-covered rum and malt balls for their flavor. The skit
culminates in Baldwin stating that “No one can resist my Schweddy Balls.”
