Review: Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls Ice Cream

Thanks to Alec Baldwin and Saturday Night Live, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream has a new flavour called Schweddy Balls.  Thankfully, it isn't made from the literal pronunciation of that word, or it would NOT be reviewed in this blog for sure.  This flavour is a Limited Batch and thus far, I have searched a few Randall's locations, some HEB and Krogers, and not found ANY pints of it in Southwest or West Houston.  It seems the only limited batches they sent Houston were Maple Blondie and Fair Goodness Cakes!  I'm about to complain to their customer service line about this issue.  I ended up having to go to the Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop over at City Walk in Sugar Land's Faux Downtown area in order to "get my hands on some Schweddy Balls"--pun NOT INTENDED!  And  it was quite delicious!  So without further ado here is your...

Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls Ice Cream Blueprint:

Vanilla Ice Cream with a hint of rum
Chocolate Rum Balls
Fudge Covered Chocolate Malted Milk Balls

This flavour is available in Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops everywhere.  It's supposed to be available in stores, but after having visiting several Kroger's, Randall's, HEB and Wal-Mart, not to mention Rice Epicurean, Whole Foods and Central Market, it seems those pints are as elusive as rain has been in Houston or Sasquatch for that matter.  This flavour is very good.  I'm a fan of Christmas Rum Balls and Malted Milk Balls, and these combined with Ben & Jerry's Ice cream with a hint of rum make a wonderful, sweet treat anyone would love.

Lucky for Ben & Jerry's I'm only grading on how good this tastes, not on the availability in Houston outside the Scoop Shops.

The Foodie Professor Awards Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls an A+ for great taste and good humour too!

And remember:
Eat Happy!
Zao an, Y'all!!!
