One Million Moms Resisting Alex Baldwin’s Schweddy Balls

September 21, 2011

OneMillionMoms, an organization affiliated with the American Family Association, announced a boycott of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream over a new flavor called “Schweddy Balls.” The group said Friday on its website: “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.”

The idea for the ice cream flavor’s name came from a 1998 Saturday Night Live comedy segment featuring Alec Baldwin, Molly Shannon, and Ana Gasteyer. In the sketch Baldwin plays Pete Schweddy, a baker who brings his best-selling holiday treat to share with two public radio hosts. “No one can resist my Schweddy balls,” Baldwin famously said in character.

The new Ben & Jerry’s flavor consists of vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum flavor, mixed with fudge-covered rum and milk chocolate malt balls.
