Ben & Jerry’s to Unveil “Schweddy Balls” Flavor

Posted on: June 13th, 2011 at 6:40 am by

On Friday morning, Saturday Night Live alumna Ana Gasteyer nonchalantly dropped a bomb during a video segment that aired on NY1. While discussing her more recent theater pursuits (“Elegant Songs from a Handsome Woman”), the comedienne alluded to the stubborn staying power of her iconic 1998 bit with Molly Shannon and Alec Baldwin, “Schweddy Balls.” And that’s just when she said it – Ben & Jerry’s is releasing a limited edition pint based on the sketch.

The delicious dish of “Schweddy Balls” reportedly arrives sometime in September, and will be available through Christmas. Given that the ingredients are still a mystery, we feel compelled to launch a guessing game. So, readers, what mouth-watering flavors do you think Ben & Jerry’s is using in their frozen interpretation of this secret Schweddy family recipe?

Classic El Sombrero Signage Probably Won’t Return to the Exterior of 108 Stanton Street

Hate to burst the bubble, but the wonderfully classic El Sombrero signage will not return to the exterior of 108 Stanton Street when the reboot launches. The marquee is now a rustic wood flavor with evenly-spaced lighting. Before you reach for that tissue, though, take comfort in the knowledge that the faded relic hasn’t altogether […]
