Hold on to your hats, folks, because this is the most worthwhile story I’ll write about all day: an ice cream company in Vermont is or is not making a flavor based on a “Saturday Night Live” skit from 13 years ago. Stop the presses and get me a bigger font.
[Ana] Gayster casually let this little bomb slip 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 and 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 we spoke to would neither confirm nor deny the move, explaining “we like all of our new flavors to have an element of surprise.” [Gothamist]
That’s a bad idea, Ben & Jerry’s. Nobody wants to be surprised by Schweddy Balls.
