Ben & Jerry’s outrages American moms with new Schweddy Balls flavour ice cream


BEN & Jerry’s has infuriated parents in the United States with their latest flavour ice cream called Schweddy Balls.

One Million Moms, the conservative organisation, an offshoot of American Family Association, has called for a boycott of the newest ice cream because they find it offensive.

“The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive,” the group posted on its website. “Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket.”

The flavour is named after the classic Alec Baldwin sketch on “Saturday Night Live,” in which he plays a bakery owner named Pete Schweddy.

The most famous line (and the one most often repeated by drunken college students) is: “No one can resist my Schweddy Balls.”

The ice cream is vanilla based with a hint of rum and fudge covered rum and malt balls.
