Is Ben & Jerry's Planning A "Schweddy Balls" Ice Cream?

THE SCOOPThere is a new, potentially amazing/horrifying Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor on the horizon: A "Schweddy Balls"-themed flavor pegged to the classic "Saturday Night Live" skit starring Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon and Alec Baldwin...The rumor comes via Gothamist, who caught Gasteyer dropping the gem about the "Schweddy Balls" sketch during an interview with New York 1: "It has this crazy, massive popularity that’s kind of had a half life since I left the show. Ben & Jerry's is coming out with a Schweddy Balls ice cream for Christmas this year." Whoa! Bowery Boogie says the flavor will arrive sometime in September and run through Christmas, but a Ben & Jerry's rep who spoke to Gothamist would neither confirm nor deny the move, explaining "we like all of our new flavors to have an element of surprise."

Hey, they might sell a shit-ton of this to chicks but I'm havin' a hard time seein' many heterosexual guys walkin' out of the local convenience store with a half gallon of "Schweddy Balls" under their arm.  Good Luck, Ben & Jerry - personally I'm not stuffin' schweddy balls into my mouth.
