Oh how I love a food and beverage company with a sense of humor.
Six weeks ago, I reported that Frito-Lay and Comedy Central were teaming up for a limited-edition Cheesy Poofs snack in honor of South Park's 15th season. I'm ecstatic to report that this past Labor Day weekend, I found a bag of said Cheesy Poofs and ripped it open as soon as I got home.
All I can say is: I understand why Eric Cartman loves them so much. Sure, they taste just like a standard Cheeto's Cheese Puff (and they probably are), but the novelty of snacking on an otherwise fictional snack made my humor-loving heart go pitter-pat.
Following the fiction-to-reality snack theme, Ben & Jerry's recently reported a new introduction to its line of delicious ice creams: Schweddy Balls.
For my fellow Saturday Night Live fans, this skit-inspired product will probably have you rolling around the cubical farm in a hysterical fit of laughter. According to Ben & Jerry's website, the ice cream will be available both pints and Scoop Shops. Flavor-wise, the delicious dairy snack will contain "Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum and milk chocolate malt balls."
