Day 90 Schweddy Smiles

Ice cream makes me smile. Malt balls make me smile. Rum makes me smile. Saturday Night Live makes me smile, especially when Alec Baldwin hosts. Put all that together and you get Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls, an ice cream that tastes great and makes you chortle. But first... have you seen the SNL skit? If not, do it now! If you have seen it, go ahead and watch it again. You know you want to.

Ok, so I just watched it again too. Hilarity!

I've been checking the stores for this ice cream since I hear about it's limited time release last week. I couldn't wait to taste those Schweddy Balls mixed in with rum flavored ice cream. I finally found it this afternoon. I was surprised that there were two different flavored balls in the ice cream. One malt ball variety and one chocolate rum flavored ball variety. I think one ball is slightly bigger than the other and a little misshapen. From what I can taste, those are the rum balls. I enjoyed my little dessert... it was good times!

Well, I've had good fun with that and I hope you can try some yourself. It's guaranteed to make you smile. By the way, I'm not being paid to endorse this good humored goodness, I just wanted to have a good laugh while I was journaling! Next time I'm at the store, I might have to try their Clusterfluff ice cream. Peanut butter and marshmallow... yummm.


  1. omygoodness, it has been so long since i've seen this video!! hilarious! i am cracking up and smirking away! our friends were just telling us about that flavor. sounds sooo good. hahaha this was great!! thanks for sharing, kelly!!

  2. I am so excited to try this! This gets me all pumped up and stuff. It's the little things, I suppose. I'm sure you have an opinion on the whole controversy surrounding it. A lot of people find it inappropriate. I find it AWESOME!

  3. You know Laura, I think the whole thing is just hilarious and isn't it supposed to be? I'm with you, I think it's great! People need to lighten up. If someone doesn't want their kids eating Schweddy Balls, then I suggest they don't buy it. I bought it. I'm not huge on censoring, but I did put the ice cream to the side and ate it after the kids went to bed. My son would just have a field day with that name and I figured I'd save myself some embarrassingly loud conversation at an inappropriate time. Otherwise, we would be laughing about it together.

    Now... what about their flavor, Clusterfluff?!! Hah!
