Thank you for providing those links. Ben and Jerry's new product launch "Schweddy Balls" ice cream flavor, vanilla ice cream, a hint of rum, loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls. The brand new flavor “Schweddy Balls” was titled after a “Saturday Evening Live” skit that features Alec Baldwin and pokes fun at National Public Radio (NPR). However, a parents' group has inexorably gotten angry over the ice cream flavor
, and this group which is called One Million Moms is calling for Ben & Jerry's treat to be boycotted. Some consider it as shallow, on the contrary, others support the group. There are lot of reactions about this hot controversy, and this becomes a trending not only in the internet forums and blogs, but also in ordinary conversation. Now, what is your opinion about this issue? From what I know, this is not the first controversy faced by the company. One of the first protests against Ben & Jerry’s was in 1999, when Vermonters protested Ben & Jerry’s selling itself to Unilever, according to the New York Times. Well, I just hope that this will be solved soon.
