Shweddy Balls

New B&J flavor references an old SNL skit.  It consists of vanilla ice cream, rum, fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.

That is wrong.  I remember the skit.  Not appetizing for some reason.

My favorite SNL skit EVER.  I suppose I'll have to try it just for that reason, though I may be thinking about Jack Donaghy's schweddy balls the whole time....

Hoping they don't get it into their heads to make real Cheesy Blasters ("Thanks, Meat Cat!") or Sabor de Soledad ("Apparently it gets its tangy flavor from evaporated bull semen.").

But I'll eat just about anything B&J extrudes into a carton.

Now how are they ever going to get "Cork Soaker" into an ice cream flavor?  On a somewhat related note, Alec Baldwin is hosting the season premiere of SNL.

FG found it after a long, determined search at Whole Foods on Johnson Ferry. She made us pain perdu with Schweddy Balls for dessert this week. As with all B&J's products the texture is unctious. The malted milk balls were crispy but not very flavorful. Not so with the rum balls, which packed quite the rummy punch. We polished off what was left later that night, so it must have been good.

It seems some conservative group called the One Million Moms is campaigning to get stores not to stock this item because the name is offensive to them. They also want B&J to promise not to use innuendo in any more names or they will boycott. About a third of retailers who carry their merchandise also carry this one, and the company claims it is the most popular limited edition product they have ever had.

No luck at all the places I shop at either... going to make the road trip to the Scoop Shop at 800 North Highland Avenue in the ATL I guess. The Million Moms oughta just stop the meddling.....
Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

Beer is why I get up every afternoon.

Don't bother going to N. Highland, MB. The woman at the counter told us the distributor for the scoop shops in Georgia had decided not to carry it for whatever reason. I guess they can't carry every flavor, but ths decision has to be haunting them now.
