Conservative Group Calls for Boycott of Ben & Jerry's 'Schweddy Balls' Flavor
FoxNews ^ | September 22, 2011 | by Joshua Rhett Miller

Ben & Jerry's latest ice cream creation -- "Schweddy Balls" -- doesn't agree with the tastes of at least one national conservative group.

"The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive," read a statement released by One Million Moms, a division of the Mississippi-based American Family Association. "Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket."

Since I already never buy Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, the boycott is kinda moot.

SNL skit with Alec Baldwin (IIRC).

Personally I liked the “too much nog” episode of the same skit.

I agree. Bigger issue to deal with. Plus it is kinda funny. This is getting great press for them. Complaining about everything dilutes real issues that need addressed.

I’ve never bought Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream, why would I start now.

I don’t like supporting businesses owned by left wing liberal aholes.

As was discussed a day or two ago re: a W. Pennsylvania group forcing a highschool drama production of “Kismet” to be withdrawn, because it was purportedly about “Islam” and it was too close to the 10 year commemoration of 9-11, Conservatives should learn to pick their battles.
Most of us have never bought Ben and Jerry’s ice cream anyway==it’s not that good, too expensive, and extremely high calorie. It’s become a novelty product, selling itself through a combination of cute names and a fatuous appeal to liberal social consciousness.Kind of a green product totally devoid of “green”. Having said that, I always thought they should come out with a flavor called
“Tracey Almond”-—at least Tracey Ullman was talented, but probably not provably PC enough for B&J.

The flavor was named for Bawney Fwank.

"In April 2000, Ben Cohen & Jerry Greenfield announced Ben & Jerry's acquisition by British-Dutch multinational food giant Unilever. May 5, 1978, with a $12,000 investment they opened an ice cream parlor in a renovated gas station in Burlington, VT."

Some twit in the Unilever marketing dept. thought this would be a good name.

I’m partial to Dreyer’s myself. You can get it in half-gallon containers. :)

I think we have “lightened up” to the point of perverts sexually bothering and dominating our kids in the schools and all Americans in our culture.

This is the time to tighten up after a long period of lightening up. We can’t afford to get any deeper into the gutter.
