Dippin’ Dots Tries to Make Peace With Arch Nemesis Sean Spicer

Ice cream company tries to improve its chilly relations with new White House Press Secretary via open letter

Dippin’ Dots is hoping to break bread — or at least down some ice cream — with newly installed White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

On Monday, after Spicer’s long-standing hatred for Dippin’ Dots was revealed, the company extended an olive branch to Spicer, declaring, “We would like to be friends rather than foes.”

In an open letter to Spicer, Dippin’ Dots CEO Scott Fischer wrote, “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.”

Despite the grim picture of American industry painted by Spicer’s boss Donald Trump during Trump’s inauguration speech last week, Fischer assured Spicer that Dippin’ Dots — despite Spicer’s trash-talk on its product — is doing just fine, thanks very much.

“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,” the open letter reads. “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.”

Fischer concluded by offering to treat the White House and press corps to an ice cream social.

“What do you say?” the letter asked. “We’ll make sure there’s plenty of all your favorite flavors.”

Spicer’s animosity for Dippin’ Dots was exposed on Monday via a series of unearthed tweets, such as a 2010 missive declaring, “Dippin dots is NOT the ice cream of the future.”

In a follow-up tweet five years later, Spicer declared, “If Dippin Dots was truly the ice cream of the future they would not have run out of vanilla cc @Nationals.”
