In search of Schweddy Balls

I don’t often get excited over ice cream and I certainly don’t usually get overly obsessed when Ben and Jerry come out with a new flavor. There’s something about the newest one, though, that has me on a mission. Something that has me on the hunt and traveling with my cooler in the trunk of my car just in case I get lucky and find it while shopping out of town. I don’t even know how it tastes, I might not even like it if I do get to try it, but I also like a good challenge and that’s what this has become. A challenge and a mission. Oh right! The flavor. I haven’t even mentioned that yet, but I’m sure many people already know which one I’m talking about. It’s Schweddy Balls, a flavor inspired by a Saturday Night Live skit. If you haven’t seen it yet you must watch it, but only if you truly have a fun sense of humor. I’ll wait here while you click over and watch it.

You’re back?? It was funny, right? No wait, I meant hysterical, right? That skit alone has brought on a strong desire to eat an entire pint all by myself, added to the fact that this ridiculous group of women has asked for it to be discontinued, I have got to get my hands on a pint of Schweddy Balls. If I do, I swear I’m going to make a video of myself and my kids taking bite after bite just so I can share it with that group on their Facebook page. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I’ve exhaustively hunted for Schweddy Balls in my local stores, stores an hour away from my home, and stores two hours away from my home. I’ve even recruited my family to help search when we go the store. I’ve yet to approach a clerk at the store to make my request for fear I’d giggle like teen aged girl while talking about my desire for some Schweddy Balls and how much it would mean to me if a local retailer would carry them. I’m at a loss and find myself feeling a little sad that this flavor simply might not make an appearance in a freezer case near my home. That, my friends, would be totally devastating. Now, for anyone who can get Schweddy Balls and wants to pack them on some dry ice and send them to my front door, I will gladly share my mailing address. In the meantime, you should at least try Schweddy Balls and tell me how they taste…..I bet they are, well, melt-in-your-mouth yummy.

The fact that I just wrote a post about my strong desire for a naughty-named ice cream flavor is a clear sign of one thing. My life is filled with excitement.


  1. Not gonna lie, I’ve been looking everywhere, too. No luck yet, but I won’t give up!

  2. Wow there are so much better things in life to get yourself all worked up over….yessh. Oh and btw I’m on the hunt now too.

    • What do you mean, better things? It seems to me that ice cream is about as good as it gets and I sure hope we ALL find some because it would be an awfully big disappointment to have to go without trying some Schweddy Balls!!

  3. Why not go right to the source? Contact Ben & Jerry’s and tell them you want your Schwetty Balls!

  4. Thanks for the laugh. Haven’t seen it, but now I’m on a mission. I will have it delivered to you. I agree with Kathy-contact Ben & Jerry’s !

    • You’re welcome my friend. I’ve been laughing for days at the idea of writing this post, like a silly, immature child. I have great hopes we will all be successful in our hunt for the balls of the Schweddy family!! P.S. I’ll wait for my package to arrive.

  5. I saw it at my local Walmart last weekend! I wanted to buy it but my husband was too embarrassed to get it. LOL!

    • Okay, your husband is no fun at all. You need to get some when you’re by yourself, then. I mean, you know you will always wonder how Ben and Jerry’s Schweddy Balls taste if you never try them. Regrets. You don’t want regrets.

  6. Haha! Now I’m on the lookout too. Shame ice cream doesn’t travel well.
