While White House press secretary Sean Spicer faces an angry backlash from many journalists over his recent comments, ice cream maker Dippin’ Dots just wants to be friends with him. Dippin’ Dots – which has marketed itself as the “ice cream of the future” – uncovered some unflattering tweets written by Spicer in 2010 and 2011 that appear to reveal a years-long obsession. “Dippin’ Dots is NOT the ice cream of the future,” Spicer tweeted back in April 2010, with no further explanation. In September 2011, Spicer’s dissatisfaction with the ice cream resurfaced, for unknown reasons. “I think I have said this before but Dippin’ Dots are not the ice cream of the future,” he wrote. When the ice cream maker declared bankruptcy that November, Spicer was quick to tweet out a link to an article about the company’s downfall. But in September 2015, after the company rebounded, he made sure to remind the world yet again that he was not impressed with the ice cream. “If Dippin’ Dots was truly the ice cream of the future they would not have run out of vanilla.” Scott Fischer, the CEO of the company, wrote an open letter to Spicer on Monday to settle things, saying, “We’ve seen your tweets and would like to be friends rather than foes.” “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,” Fischer wrote. Spicer has yet to comment on the offer.
