Lazy Blogging and Schweddy Balls Ice Cream Press Release to the Rescue

I was going to blog over labor day weekend, but I was away at my parent’s internet-less and ice cream-less vacation condo.

I was going to blog on Tuesday, but Daria: The Full Animated Series came in the mail.

I was going to blog on Wednesday, but a friend invited me to the NYC Teen Author Reading Night.

I was going to blog on Thursday, but it was Fashion’s Night Out.

And so today, you get the lazy-man’s version of blogging: highlights from the press release of the biggest ice cream news of the week, Ben & Jerry’s Schweddy Balls.

Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls

BURLINGTON, Vt.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To celebrate the talented writers, crew and actors behind arguably television’s funniest television program, today, Ben & Jerry’s launched its newest limited-batch flavor, Schweddy Balls. The flavor is an ode to the classic “Saturday Night Live” sketch [viewable at] starring Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon, as hosts of the “Delicious Dish,” a National Public Radio program parody, along with Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, the fictional owner of Season’s Eatings Bakery.

The legendary actor, comedian, and perennial favorite SNL host appreciates keeping the laughs going. “For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone,” said Baldwin. “Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond.” The flavor, available nationwide, features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.

You can read the rest at Business Wire here. And I’ll be back next week with more ice cream.
