I have been searching for Ben and Jerrys new ice cream flavor Shweddy Balls. I cannot find it anywhere! During my family trip to Kroger today I asked the Kroger employee who was stocking the ice cream about the availability of the new Ben and Jerrys ice cream Shweddy Balls. She informed me that the store recieved an email from corporate to not stock the ice cream, even if it arrives at the store!! WHAT??? Are you kidding me? Because a couple of housewives who have nothing better to do than boycott an ice cream flavor because of its silly name! I am completely dissapointed in Kroger for following in this ridiculous boycott....... OF AN ICE CREAM!!!! Really Kroger, dont you realize that all the contraversy is causing more interest which would result in more sales at your store. Its a name for goodness sakes nothing racial, sexual or degrating, yet corporate is acting as if the ice cream name is hurting someone. Its named after a character on SNL who makes his own rum balls recipe for the holiday. People are concerned about their kids saying the same or asking about it. Seriously parents you cant tell your kids it a name of a recipe. I am so irritated with people trying to make everything so over the top and threaten with boycotts etc. Why are people trying to make everyone more sensative when the world is getting more tougher and cruel everyday. Thanks Kroger for being part of the pansy parade. You know what, I find the name Kroger offensive so I am boycotting YOUR STORES! Im sure there are other grocery stores that have the "Balls" to sell an ice cream that has gotten serious attention for its name! Wow how lame!
Stop being idiots and sell ice cream. If I want anyone to parent my grocery decisions I'll move to a third world country.
