Schweddy Balls In Your Mouth

Schweddy Balls In Your Mouth

Ben and Jerry's is making yet another silly pun of an ice cream and I'm sure you're going to eat it up.
Ben & Jerry's is unveiling a new flavor, and it doesn't sound too tasty.
"Schweddy Balls" is an homage to an old "Saturday Night Live" skit featuring Alec Baldwin as bakery owner Pete Schweddy, whose unique holiday offerings included something called "Schweddy Balls."

Sean Greenwood, a spokesman for the Vermont ice cream maker, said Thursday that the company isn't worried about offending people with the name. He says one of the company's principles is to do fun things and that it fits in with that, just as it did with previous flavors like Karamel Sutra and Half Baked.

The new flavor is available at scoop shops and supermarkets. It consists of vanilla ice cream, rum, fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.

Oh, don't remember the reference? Why hey...

Why yes, thisis a sort of pun on sweaty balls. Enjoy it. Consume it. Put them down your throat. Oooooh yeah. Meh, I'm by no means a republican or anything but left-ish, but I never really got the appeal of Ben & Jerry. The Colbert's Americone Dream was good, but other than that flavor and some stout flavor, I thought their ice cream wasn't anything to write home about.

Besides that, one of Ben and Jerry's latest flavors literally has potato chips in it. I don't know how exactly that can work out well, but you consumers are fucking eating that shit up.

Do you remember when they supported gay-marriage by naming an ice cream flavor after it? Truly a delicious blend of liberalism and consumerism. Please buy OUR BRAND, the only brand that supports YOUR VALUES!

For as much as Ben and Jerry's is liberalism in a tub, you need to remember that Ben and Jerry's parent company Unilever's business practices in the third world involve systematized child labor and sexual coercion of female workers.

I do wonder if it's at all possible to make an ice cream flavor featuring parts of the female body without it being sexualized in some way. I imagine it'd be impossible to sell "Schweddy underside of a tit" I imagine a lot of people are frustrated that there's no "Fire Crotch Butterscotch" on the shelf.
