Stores Pull Ben & Jerry’s “Schweddy Balls” off Shelves

By Barbara Ann Kelley,

balls3 Stores Pull Ben & Jerrys Schweddy Balls off Shelves Ice Cream maker Ben & Jerry’s is in hot water over their newest limited-batch flavor ice cream called “Schweddy Balls”. Some store chains are pulling the popular ice cream from their shelves.

The flavor is named after a “Saturday Night Live” skit in which actor Alec Baldwin portrays bakery owner “Pete Schweddy.”

Ben & Jerry’s describes Schweddy Balls as a “vanilla flavored ice cream with a hint of rum and loaded with fudge and rum covered chocolate malt balls.”

One Million Moms, a conservative parental advocacy group, calls the new flavor vulgar and offensive. Despite the group’s objections to the name, the flavor is a hit with shoppers because the limited-batch ice cream is selling as fast as grocers can stock it.

The group’s website,, has this statement about the offending product: “Ben & Jerry’s announced their newest ice cream flavor which sounds anything but appealing.” “Schweddy Balls is the best they could come up with.” “The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive.” “Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket.”

They were calling for a letter-writing campaign to pressure store to stop selling the ice cream. Which worked with some chain supermarkets.

    Vulgar. Just what I would expect out of a couple of liberal freaks. It is the last straw for me and there is too much good ice cream out there. I will do without before I eat Ben and Jerry’s.

    Ben and Jerry’s is history. Not only is it vulgar, but it shows their disdain for their customers. Well, what goes around comes around. Blue Bell for me from now on. The perverts can eat what they wish.
