Causing peals of laughter to erupt across the country, Ben & Jerry’s proudly announced the release of Schweddy Balls, a new flavor of ice cream that will be available for a limited time only.
The comically named frozen dessert pays tribute to a famous Saturday Night Live sketch. It stars Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, a guest appearing on NPR’s “Delicious Dish” radio show. During his visit, Pete and the show’s hosts talk at length about his, um, very special holiday treat.
When asked to comment, Baldwin had this to say about the announcement: “For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone. Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond.”
