Ben & Jerry’s latest ice cream flavor pays homage to a classic “Saturday Night Live” skit. “Schweddy Balls” ice cream will debut on Sept. 24 to mark SNL’s 37th season premiere. The limited-batch flavor is made with fudge-covered rum balls and chocolate malt balls stirred into vanilla ice cream. The inspiration is a character created by Alec Baldwin – a specialty food marketer named Pete Schweddy.  As a guest on a fake NPR program called “Delicious Dish,” Schweddy speaks with “hosts” Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon about his holiday treats, including rum balls, malt balls and, of course, his famous Schweddy balls. “No one can resist my Schweddy balls,” Baldwin deadpans.
