Don’t know about you, but when we think about holiday treats, our minds veer toward a special snack created by Pete Schweddy, owner of Seasons Eatings. Apparently, the folks at Ben & Jerry’s have heard about this delectable delight too and are introducing a Schweddy Balls flavor of ice cream.
Some years ago, Schweddy Balls gained a bit of national notoriety after Pete Schweddy’s appearance on National Public Radio’s Delicious Dish program. You can view the segment below, along with a two-word introduction from Alec Baldwin (who bears a bit of a resemblance to Schweddy, come to think of it).
Inspired by Schweddy’s work, Ben & Jerry’s is putting out pints of vanilla ice cream “with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.”
Who knows, if the Schweddy Balls ice cream is a success, maybe someone will step up and offer to distribute the famed Schweddy Wiener in time for next baseball season.
