The viral Twitter feud involving a member of President Trump’s White House and an ice cream company resurfaced Monday when Dippin’ Dots CEO Scott Fischer penned an open letter to Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Spicer has been fighting a very one-sided battle with Dippin’ Dots for years, with his tweets berating the company having gone viral over the weekend. According to the White House’s new spokesman, Dippin’ Dots is not the ice cream of the future, as its advertising claims.
Dippin dots is NOT the ice cream of the future

The ice cream company appears to be taking the higher road in the battle, with CEO Fischer writing Monday that they’d “like to be friends rather than foes. After all, we believe in connecting the dots.”
It’s not clear what started Spicer’s attack on Dippin’ Dots, which appears to have started in 2010, but a 2015 tweet suggests he’s upset about the lack of vanilla ice cream at a Washington Nationals game.
If Dippin Dots was truly the ice cream of the future they would not have run out of vanilla cc @Nationals

Fischer responded to that complaint specifically, saying “running out of your favorite flavor can feel like a national emergency!”
Spicer has yet to respond.
