What could possibly have gone wrong?

Ben and Jerry's makes delicious stuff, but calling ice cream "balls" or "dung" is not good marketing.

Ben & Jerry's is getting exactly what they're looking for. Publicity.

I don't know what the flavor is, but I am guessing it has nuts.

Ben & Jerry's is owned by Unilever, a British-Dutch conglomerate, so now Americans are saying "We are not amused"?

No, I won't...

*grabs spammer by the sweddy balls*

The activism group is calling the flavor “anything but appealing,” not to mention tasteless.

Although I have no personal experience in the matter, I doubt that schweddy balls could be described as "tasteless." Ladies?

A statement from Unilever to One Million Moms: "Please stop appearing in national media protesting our Schweddy Balls (tm) ice cream. Anything but that! We will give you exactly one week to stop. OK, you can have a month, but after that we might get testy."

Spent too long watching the SNL sketch.. must get back to work.

Any time watching SNL is too long...

Maybe Unilever Ben & Jerry could stage a flash promotion in front of the Ft. Wayne Government Center Not Named After Former Mayor Harry Baals Even Though His First Wife Was Named Minnie For Good Measure, and issue free sacks of their creamy best.
