    I read a post where someone said that he's sure it'll taste creamy ... and a little bit salty :lol:

    Would you like chopped nuts on that?

    Once you've had a serving, you may have to wait awhile before you can have a second one.

    No cherries were harmed in the manufacture of that product.

    Is it soft-serve or hard?

    Funny but would have been much more relevant/:lol:.n the late 90s. Seems somewhat random now?

    I love Ben and Jerry's! I just don't love their price.

    They have a flavor out (I assume it is still out) called Late Night Snack. It is AMAZING. It is chocolate covered potato chip balls (yes, you read that right!) in vanilla bean ice cream with caramel swirls. A salty sweet bite of heaven! :swoon:

    :rofl: ….Classic - both the flavor idea and the SNL skit that inspired it.

    I haven't had any Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream ever since they quit making my favorite flavor of theirs, Wavy Gravy, which led to all kinds of :drama: :wuzrobbed on my part -- and apparently a lot of other people (there's a Facebook page called "Bring Back Wavy Gravy :rofl: ), but I'll definitely try this flavor out since that SNL skit was one of my favorites.

    My new favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry's is Clusterfluff. Stupidly expensive but oh so tasty....

    Is there a sugar-free version of Schweddy Balls?

    I'm imagining you asking a sales clerk at Safeway this question with a straight face and it's totally cracking me up.

    This is based on an Alec Baldwin routine? They should have called it Bloviator.

    Yes, an Alec Baldwin Xmas sketch where he played a character named Pete Schweddy. And brought in a plate of his Schweddy balls. Say it out loud ... there, now you've got it!

    "The new flavor is available at scoop shops and supermarkets. It consists of vanilla ice cream, rum, fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls"

    That actually sounds delish! I will buy a pint if I see it at Kroger's today.:D
