Dippin' Dots Wants Sean Spicer as a

But it's incoming press secretary Sean Spicer who's been waging a weird war on an ice cream brand for nearly seven years.

Billie Stuber, Media Relations Manager for Dippin' Dots, told West Kentucky Star that neither Fisher, nor Founder and CEO Curt Jones have had any interaction with Spicer. See, Spicer has been on an anti-Dots crusade for quite some time now, dating back until at least April of 2010 - seven years ago - when he tweeted the following hot take about the ice cream brand's slogan.

Dippin' Dots, which calls itself "the ice cream of the future", has seen double-digit sales growth for the past three years across the US and 13 countries.

Four years went by, and it seemed like Spicer was over it.

More recently, in 2015, the then-chief strategist for the Republican National Committee tweeted his disappointment at not being able to procure vanilla-flavoured Dippin' Dots at Nationals Park, the stadium of the Washington Nationals baseball team.

After penning an open later to the press secretary which called for an amicable truce, Dippin' Dots CEO Scott Fischer was welcomed on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning to discuss the company's efforts to thaw Spicer's allegedly icy view of the company. And running out of your favorite flavor can feel like a national emergency!

Now, none of us-powerful press secretary or tub of tiny frozen ice cream balls alike-can know what the future holds. "After all, we believe in connecting the dots". That means we're creating jobs and opportunities. The letter acknowledged Spicer's new position, saying, "We hear that's on your agenda, too".

Stuber said, "We're happy to treat them to some Dippin' Dots, to an ice cream party". We'll make sure there's plenty of all your favorite flavors.

Shama Hyder, a marketing specialist who works with Dippin' Dots, says a lot of thought was put into the now-viral open letter, with the company keen to avoid getting "caught in the political cross-hairs". After Donald Trump's tweets in support of another private company, L.L. Bean, caused a national boycott, Dippin' Dots may be trying to ward off a business backlash by appeasing Spicer. More on this odd story as it develops.
