The CEO of Dippin' Dots — the flash-frozen "ice cream of the future" that social media users recently discovered was the subject of a one-sided, five-year Twitter feud with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer — has fired back.
On at least four separate occasions over five years, Spicer mocked Dippin' Dots' tagline, and in one case, posted a link to a Wall Street Journal article about Dippin' Dots filing for bankruptcy.
"Dear Sean, we understand that ice cream is a serious matter," Fischer wrote. "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," Fischer concluded. "What do you say? We'll make sure there's plenty of all your favorite flavors."
It's not exactly the first time an administration comment about foodstuff has drawn a response from the food industry.
