Beloved amusement industry product Dippin' Dots is not the ice cream of the future, according to the new White House press secretary, Sean Spicer. Tweets by the spokesman, dating back nearly 7 years, appear to wage war on the company with these "alternate facts."

UPDATE (1/23/17): The company has offered to make peace with Spicer, in an open letter:
We understand that ice cream is a serious matter. And running out of your favorite flavor can feel like a national emergency! We’ve seen your tweets and would like to be friends rather than foes. After all, we believe in connecting the dots.
As you may or may not know, Dippin’ Dots are made in Kentucky by hundreds of hard working Americans in the heartland of our great country. As a company, we’re doing great. We’ve enjoyed double-digit growth in sales for the past three years. That means we’re creating jobs and opportunities. We hear that's on your agenda too.
We can even afford to treat the White House and press corps to an ice cream social. What do you say? We’ll make sure there’s plenty of all your favorite flavors.
Scott, CEO of Dippin’ Dots
He is right, if Dippin' Dots were the ice cream of the future they would be impossible to purchase today.
more like the frozen treat from the present. I wouldn't really consider them "Ice cream" either.
I think you guys are overthinking it.
Forget mainstream media, The Onion is the publication that should be fearing for its existence. You can't write satire that's this good.
Didn't know Bagdad Bob had a brother.
As a friend used to say, if Dippin' Dots is the ice cream of the future, what does that tell us about the future? That it's overpriced and tastes bad.
The future is pastel. And composed of tiny beads.
My good god. I thought the original article was satire until I saw this in CNN. Wow. Just...
It's getting more stupid by the moment in Washington.
Fortunately, the good folks who make Dots responded:
We’ll make sure there’s plenty of all your favorite flavors... Dot dot dot.
Should have been.Last edited by Walk-Off HBP, Monday, January 23, 2017 5:26 PM
So... It's a publicity stunt, partnering with the White House?
Or did I just not get it?
