Ben & Jerry’s Wants You To Try Their Schweddy Balls

Alec Baldwin is one of the finest actors of our times. His range is limitless and he’s managed to sustain a career that seems to only get better with age. In addition to a multitude of awards, Alec Baldwin has also become one of Saturday Night Live’s favorite guests. When fans think of Alec Baldwin, one skit certainly comes to mind: Schweddy Balls. The Schweddy Balls skit is to Alec Baldwin what Jeopardy is to Will Ferrell.

In this skit, Alec Baldwin plays Pete Schweddy, a guest on an NPR show, The Delicious Dish, where he talks about his signature holiday dish, Schweddy Balls. The skit, approximately 6 minutes, is a giant exercise in the use of sexual innuendos that would make Michael Scott wet his pants.

The ice cream is described by Ben & Jerry’s as “Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum and milk chocolate malt balls”. Be sure to grab a pint while they’re around for a limited time!

The skit continues to hold mind share in fans of the show despite the fact it aired over 10 years ago. If you’re unfamiliar, be prepared to laugh. Do NOT attempt to watch this while drinking coffee or operating heavy machinery:
