Over the weekend, “news” broke that Donald Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, had been in a long-running and very one-sided feud with Dippin’ Dots, a product he said was categorically not, in fact, the ice cream of the future. Now, Dippin’ Dots has responded, albeit in a typically corporate way.
In an open letter posted to DippinDots.com, Scott Fischer, the company’s CEO, addresses Spicer directly, saying that the company understands “ice cream is a serious matter” and that “running out of your favorite flavor can feel like a national emergency.” Saying the company would rather be Spicer’s friend than foe, Fischer goes on to remind the press secretary that “Dippin’ Dots are made in Kentucky by hundreds of hard working Americans in the heartland of our great country,” and ends by inviting Spicer and the rest of the press corps to a Dippin’ Dots ice cream social in D.C. “We’ll make sure there’s plenty of all your favorite flavors,” Fischer writers, in a way that hopefully feels like a little wink toward the fact that Spicer’s favorite flavor is fucking vanilla, a flavor as bland as Spicer.
As of press time, Spicer has not responded to Dippin’ Dots, but lord willing, he will. It’s not like he has anything more important to do, right?
