Would you like that topped off with a cherry and some sac sweat?

If you’re like me, you’ve always wanted to bottle the smell of your schnuts after a good game of lazer tag. But, bottling your bean scent is hard to bottle, much less market. What’s the next best thing? Ice cream! Leave it to Ben & Jerry’s to come up with Schweddy Balls flavored ice cream.

From Reuters: 

(Reuters) – Vermont’s Ben & Jerry’s newest ice cream flavor sounds more likely to tickle funny bones than taste buds: “Schweddy Balls.”

The company known for provocative or progressive themed names for its frozen treats said the latest creation was a tribute to a 1998 skit on NBC’s Saturday Night Live starring actor Alec Baldwin.

In the skit, Baldwin plays a baker named Pete Schweddy who is trying to market his rum balls, popcorn balls and cheese balls as “Schweddy Balls.”

“I don’t think it’s shock marketing,” said Sean Greenwood, a spokesman for the company, a unit of Netherlands-based Unilever N.V. “It isn’t ‘Let’s try to put a dirty name on a pint and sell it’ but ‘Let’s try to put a tie on a show that’s been running for 37 years.'” [Aquasac responds: Why lie? What a pussy. “I don’t think it’s shock marketing”. What a bald faced lie. You know you are marketing it because of its name that sounds like “sweaty balls”. No one would think of anything else. This is not supposed to be a negative piece, but when I see guys with no dick swingin’ between their probably shaved legs, unable to man up and just admit that the name is supposed to be provocative, I lose respect for you.]

The flavor, which mixes vanilla and rum-flavored ice cream with fudge-covered rum balls and chocolate malt balls, will be available through the end of the year.

The company promises consumers that the limited batch will be a favorite, echoing a line from the skit. “You won’t be able to resist our Schweddy Balls!”

Past popular flavors include “Cherry Garcia,” in homage to the late Grateful Dead guitarist; “Karamel Sutra,” a play on the name of an ancient Indian sex manual; and ‘Half Baked’ and ‘Magic Brownies,’ names associated with marijuana use.

In 2009, in support of a Vermont effort to legalize gay marriage, the company temporarily renamed its “Chubby Hubby” ice cream “Hubby Hubby.”

“We’ve talked with SNL over the years about partnering with classic skits, there were a myriad of ideas,” Greenwood said. “It’s really that kind of irreverence and double entendre that we like.”

Pretty funny, I gotta give it to them. I would never do such a thing, nor would I ever buy a pint of their ice cream because they represent everything I despise apropos progressivism, but, a good nut joke makes me smile. Good nut jokes like this being displayed in public is yet another sign of our ever-increasingly degenerate culture. Hooray!
