A 'Schweddy Ball' Ice Cream Protest

schweddy-balls-125.jpgBen & Jerry's, a unit of the multinational corporation Unilever, announced earlier this month that they were releasing a "Schweddy Balls" ice cream flavor based on the classic Saturday Night Live sketch with Alec Baldwin. Now, of course, comes the backlash. A conservative group named One Million Moms is calling for a boycott of the flavor, claiming that it "has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive." [OMM via HuffPo]
