Obama + Scoops = Awesomeness

Flavors for Change

Scoops is possibly my favorite place in the whole wide world. Not only do they make the most delicious ice cream on the planet (I dare you to find a better flavor selection), but now they're raising money for the Obama campaign! From now until Halloween, they'll be making election-inspired flavors and donating 20% of the proceeds to the Obama Victory Fund!

Tonight, they're even having an ice cream social to kick it all off.

A disclaimer from contributor K:
In the interest of bipartisanship we were going to post about a similar McCain event, but we can't find one because Republicans don't like to have fun.

The Scoops guy (Tai I think?) needs to be sainted. Who do we see about that?

I love Tai, but as for sainthood, I think you're gonna have to call the Pope on that one. And I'm not sure the Pope likes ice cream , or fun, or Obama for that matter.

I thought Obama was mentally retarded? How are we allowing him to run for public office??? I thought retards were legally subhumans...

This is me ignoring Joe . . .

Also, I have no idea why my first comment posted twice, and no idea how to delete one . . .dammit.

Pinkberry is officially the worst frozen treat I have ever experienced so maybe they should support McCain

I agree with Neal!!!!!!!!!!!

jojo said...

I'm still pretty sure Obama has a severe mental deficiency. Where are his GRADES people?? :)

Neal said...

Andrew,

Unless you are a calorie-counting, flavour-hating metrosexual (or a girl) I suggest you accept that someone has misled you regarding Pinkberry.

I'm the one who "misled" Andrew - so give him a break! Plus, I like Pinkberry for its own merits, but not because it tastes like ice cream (because it clearly doesn't).

Scoops is still the best, though.

Neal said...

iwriteplays,

see my previous comment - you should clearly like Pinkberry since you are a girl. Without wanting to sound like the unreconstucted sexist I maybe am, Pinkberry is girls stuff.

Dazed and Confused said...

Flavour hating metrosexual?....don't think so, I like cheese too much, and beer. I am a vegetarian though so that's definitely points against.

Having singularly failed to go to scoops or pinkberry I have to admit I have no frame of reference for comparison. I blame iwriteplays entirely for this...she was too busy feeding me veggie burgers, Mexican food and beer of many varieties to get around to pudding. Ah well next time :)

I love how a political discussion just disintegrated into a debate on the merits of frozen non-yogurt. I think we should have a deabte. Followed the following weeks by vice-cupcake debates.

Thank you for taking my cherry pico and the man.
This is my first time commenting on a blog.

Alright.. first of all, is Scoops even ice cream? Is it not technically gelato? And Pinkberry--is it not yogurt?

If you want to talk ICE CREAM check out Double Rainbow ice cream from San Francisco. It is THE BEST! Any flavor. Vanilla is pretty awesome , but coffee ain't bad.

You used to be able to find Double Rainbow at Trader Joes, but it has recently gone AWOL. You can currently only find Double Rainbow Sorbet, another kind of arctic sweet. What a frosty treat cock tease! (However there is a parlor in Santa Barbara off State street....YUM!)

So. When we begin to break down the subcategories of ice sweets and you all want to get serious about the best, I will be here to rumble.
