Alec Baldwin confirms he’s all about the Schweddy Balls.
Alec Baldwin took some time out of his busy schedule of tweeting and talking about his 27-year-old girlfriend to praise Ben & Jerry’s for their ingenious Schweddy Balls creation.
“They sent me a sample months ago,” Baldwin told Entertainment Weekly. “They messengered it over to my house. I had a container arrive on dry ice with malted milk balls and rum-tinged vanilla. I was well aware they were headed in that direction.”
The prolific Saturday Night Live host played Schweddy Ball purveyor Pete Schweddy in a skit with Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon. Sadly, Baldwin probably won’t partake in his namesake ice cream.
“I’m a fan of all Ben & Jerry’s, but I’m on a diet now so I’ve kind of cut back,” he said. Not surprising, since the veteran actor told a fan on Twitter that he weighs in at a hefty 315 lbs.
“For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone,” Baldwin added in a statement.
“Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond. It is immortalized here, right now, and it’s an ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s and Schweddy. Two great names in American dessert, together at last.”
We can’t wait to get some of Schweddy’s rum-laced vanilla ice cream and fudge-covered rum-and-malt balls in our mouth.
