Ben & Jerry's introduces "Schweddy Balls" ice cream flavor (npr.org)

I would say something like, "I never thought I would see the day," but really now, who ever contemplated anything like this EVER happening? As I said in my latest Facebook status update, this is either the pinnacle of achievement in modern dessert innovation or the moment when Ben & Jerry's finally jumped the shark. I tend to think it's the former.

The ice cream itself sounds tasty enough, but it also doesn't sound like anything too outlandish ("vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls" according to the NPR article). I think it would have been rather fitting if they added something salty - maybe potato chips like in their Jimmy Fallon-inspired Late Night Snack ice cream. Or maybe that would be taking things too far, heh.

Next up: Chocolate Salty Balls Ice Cream? Eh? Eh?

(P.S. - I may not be the first to say this, but there really should be a food forum here. With all the soda and fast food talk, I think it would make for a nice little section. Anyway...)

Late Night Snack's potato chip pieces are actually chocolate salty balls, which are so amazing that I keep lobying for them to become a snack food unto themselves.

I love the idea, but I'm not a fan of rum chocolate OR malt balls. I'd still be willing to give Schweddy Balls a try just to say I did so, but I don't expect the flavour to be to my liking.

Every time, I see Late Night Snack, I want to punch it. I have no idea why? No go for me on this with the new diet.

Perhaps you're just getting something from the label that no one else does? Might be a theme...
