Schweddy Balls!!!

No one can resist Ben and Jerry's Schweddy Balls.
Here it is! One of Ben and Jerry's new flavors Schweddy Balls!

Schweddy balls is Vanilla Ice Cream with a Hint of Rum and Loaded with Fudge Covered Rum and Malt Balls. The pint container was pretty cool. They have the cow saying "Season's Eatings" in the top left corner of the picture (for those of you who don't know, that saying is from the SNL skit). It has the plaid as the background for the name (from Alec Baldwin's shirt). And the cow with the Saturday Night Live shirt on.

 Just a little note about the flavor

I really liked the flavor. Some of my friends tried it and they said it was just OK but I really liked it. The vanilla doesn't look like there is rum in it (from the picture) but you can definitely taste it. I think it somehow inhances the vanilla flavor and makes the flavor stronger and more intense.

There are a lot of schweddy balls in the pint. They are scattered throughout the pint. You probably won't get one in every spoonful but there are plenty in the pint itself. Let me just say that they were bigger than I expected. Some of them were soft and some of them were hard and all of them were a little misshapen (lol). I think that the malt flavor overtakes the rum flavor in the balls though (which is not really a bad thing since the vanilla has the rum flavor in it).

I really like this flavor. I hope that Ben and Jerry's keeps it and don't put it into the graveyard. I wouldn't even mind if they allowed the flavor to come back every year for the holidays. It could be like a tradition, which I think would be very cool.

Happy Season's Eatings everyone!!!
