Ben & Jerry’s “Schweddy Balls” Spark Controversy
Ben & Jerry’s newest ice cream flavor might be a little too hot to handle for some supermarkets to carry thanks to pressure from the Mississippi-based organization One Million Moms. The group claims that the name goes too far with its locker room humor and is inappropriate for young children. The organisation has declined to publicly denounce the company’s newest ice cream flavor name to avoid directing additional publicity to the Ice Cream maker.
Despite the outcry, a Ben & Jerry’s spoke person stated that Schweddy Balls is being carried by about the same amount of retailers as any other specialty flavor and that this one is actually outpaced previous flavors in terms of sales.
