Schweddy Balls'Saturday Night Live' fans, you better make some room in your freezer. Ben and Jerry's has officially announced the launch of Schweddy Balls ice cream. Yes, an ice cream flavor based on the fan-favorite 'SNL' Delicious Dish skit featuring Molly Shannon, Ana Gasteyer and Alec Baldwin.

"For a long time, I thought that 'Here Lies Pete Schweddy' would end up on my tombstone," Baldwin said in a statement. "Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry's, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won't go with me to the great beyond."
