Ben & Jerry's would like you to put its Schweddy Balls in your mouth, roll its Schweddy Balls on your tongue, and relish in the feeling of its Schweddy Balls dripping cream down your throat.

The Vermont-based ice-cream company announced Wednesday that it has introduced a new flavor, Schweddy Balls, inspired by Alec Baldwin's famous, innuendo-laden "Saturday Night Live" routine.

So what's in this new flavor? If you guessed nuts — which, to be fair, is only logical — you'd be wrong. Instead, it mixes Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.

"Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry's, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won't go with me to the great beyond,” Baldwin-as-Schweddy said of the new flavor in Ben & Jerry's announcement.

In the "SNL" skit, Baldwin — who returns as host of the sketch-comedy series on Sept. 24 — plays Pete Schweddy, owner of the Season's Eatings bakery, who entices "Delicious Dish" radio-show hosts Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon with his holiday treat Schweddy Balls, as the double-entendres fly fast and furious.
