the awesomest news aSaturday Night Live
fan/Alec Baldwin fan/human being could ever hope to hear: That Ben and Jerry'smight
be unveiling a new flavor based the iconic "Schweddy Balls" sketch starring Baldwin and cast members Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer.
The sketch revolved around Pete Schweddy, a baker who is famous for the sweet balls that bear his last name. Add in a public radio show hosted by Gasteyer and Shannon, and the rest is history. Gasteyer blabbed the info during an interview with New York 1, but Gothamist reported that a rep for Ben & Jerry's would neither confirm nor deny the plans.
According to Bowery Boogie, the limited-edition flavor could be slated for a September release and would be sold through Christmas. Too bad we can't leave anything out because of an excessive rat problem.
Whether or not the rumor is true, it got us here at Art Attack thinking about other SNL-inspired ice cream flavors we'd like to see. Flavors like...
