Two officers from Halifax, Virginia took it upon themselves to try and ease the otherwise all-time high tensions between civilians and authorites these days by issuing ice cream to a ton of drivers.

When asked why they did it, Chief Lands told Virginia’s ABC 6 that he and Officer Warner just “wanted to try and put some smiles on people’s faces.”

When the Internet discovered Sean Spicer's five-year long war with Dippin' Dots, the so-called future of ice cream, the world held its breath and waited for a response. 

Well, hell has frozen over. 

Dippin' Dots has responded to the White House press secretary and offered to bring their delightful ice cream balls to him.

Writing on their website

Dippin' Dots CEO Scott Fischer responds

Dear Sean, 

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

It looks like Ben & Jerry's is going to release another politically-themed ice cream. In the past they've rolled out flavors like 'PrObama' and 'Yes Pecan!'

Well, this go round they're aiming to release 'Bernie's Yearning,' which would feature a "big disk of chocolate on top, covering the entire top and below it is just plain mint ice cream. The disc of chocolate represents 90 percent of the wealth that's gone to the top 10 percent over the last 10 years."

Ben Cohen went on to suggest that "You take your spoon and you whack that big chocolate disc into little pieces and mix it around," meant to symbolize a more equally distributed U.S. economy, one where everyone gets their share.
