Recently I read that the Ben & Jerry's SNL inspired limited edition "Schweddy Balls" was getting pulled from some supermarket shelves due to controversy over the names (just locating this link required me to search "Schweddy Balls Eater"). Thus far I'd only seen the flavor in the Rock Center scoop shop, but last night I spotted more than a few pints at a Park Slope bodega. Oh yeah, Brooklyn's still got balls...
Village Market on 7th Ave in the Slope is like the Holy Grail of pint ice cream. It almost seems hand curated with mix-in laden Ben & Jerry's limited edition batches. I've been on the lookout for Late Night Snack--vanilla ice cream with a salty caramel swirl chocolate covered potato chips, since it was launched in March with no success and there it was, surrounded by pints of awesomeness like Bonnaroo Buzz, Clusterfluff and Boston Cream Pie. At $5.49 the pints aren't cheap, but you don't go to a bodega expecting to get a deal on ice cream. As of last night they had eight pints of Schweddy Balls. If you've been dying to hit that, the time is now.
