On Sunday I had the distinct pleasure of being able to walk up to a man I didn’t know in Wegman’s with this very serious inquiry: “Excuse me, Sir, do you have Schweddy Balls?” His quick reply was “Yes, I do!”, and much to my delight, he led me there. Thank goodness, because I had looked high and low for them!
I am a connoisseur of the double entendre. I live for it, seriously. Luckily, I also live with a man who rivals my passion for teenage boy-type humor and we live a pretty tickled existence. Ben & Jerry’s just came out with a “Schweddy Balls” ice cream flavor which unfortunately isn’t actually as good as it sounds. Based on a classic, fantastic skit with Alec Baldwin on Saturday Night Live, Schweddy Balls is a reference to his character’s family recipe. Love it, love it, love it! Unfortunately the ice cream didn’t do it for me, but I think I may be alone on this one. Maybe because it’s ice cream and was actually a bit too…creamy. The first ingredient is cream. Cream! Kind of grosses me out to think about it, but not so much that I didn’t eat it. It also had malt balls in it which make me feel like I’m eating chalk nuggets, so all in all this was not the place I wanted to waste calories.
Right after making this picture, I left it on the counter and walked away… for 3 hours. Came back to warm, melted schweddy balls and had no choice but to finish them off.
It was okay, but I wouldn’t buy it again because I’m waiting on the Dusty Muffin.
