COLD ON BALDWIN

“Schweddy Balls.”

Yeah, well. That’s the name of Ben & Jerry’s newest limited-batch ice cream flavor, inspired by Alec Baldwin’s comedic Christmastime performance as “Pete Schweddy” on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” years ago. Mr. Baldwin, who is seriously mulling a run for mayor of New York City in 2013, say he’s delighted to be “immortalized” in the flavor, which consists of vanilla ice cream with a tad of rum and “loaded with fudge-covered rum balls and milk-chocolate malt balls.”
