Schweddy Balls: A search for Ben & Jerry's newest ice cream creation

September 19, 2011 

A little over a week ago I wrote about Schweddy Balls, the newest ice cream flavor from Ben & Jerry's that pays homage to a classic "Saturday Night Live" skit.

Since then my hubby and I have been trying to track down a pint so we can try (what we hope is) a great new flavor, plus we're big fans of the skit.

Sadly, we haven't been able to locate the new flavor in the area. We haven't looked at every possible location, but we've casually checked out several grocery stores in Columbus, Phenix City and Opelika. No dice all the way around.

Any one have any luck finding it?

The hubs jokingly mentioned something about ordering it from the B&J website, which I doubted was possible, but I checked it out anyway. Turns out I was right — they no longer do the mail-order-ice-cream thing BUT they direct you to a site that does. carries a variety of flavors including — you guessed it! — Schweddy Balls. So in lieu of driving around checking all the frozen food aisles of every grocery and convenience store, I think I may just have to place an order.

If you, too, are anxious to try Schweddy Balls but haven't been able to find a local retailer who carries it, click here.

You're welcome.
