Here’s the Breakdown of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s Feud With Dippin’ Dots

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary for the Trump administration, is feeling the heat lately over a pretty cold issue. Between 2010 and 2015, the then-communications director for the Republican National Committee sent a series of angry tweets, continually denying that Dippin’ Dots was “the ice cream of the future,” as the company claims. The oddly inflamed Twitter rants aimed at the pellet-shaped ice cream has created a hilarious uproar. In response, Dippin’ Dots has called for a truce and is extending an olive branch: “We’ve seen your tweets and would like to be friends rather than foes. After all, we believe in connecting the dots,” read the letter, signed by Dippin’ Dots’ chief executive Scott Fischer.

Sierra Nevada Beer Recalls Bottles in 36 States for Broken Glass Defect

Sierra Nevada issued a voluntary recall of more than one in 10,000 products purchased in 36 Midwestern, Southern, and East Coast states and the District of Columbia, due to a safety defect. The brewery detected a bottling flaw that could potentially cause a piece of glass to break off and fall into the drink, putting the consumer at risk for injury. Fortunately, though, none have been reported. Quality inspectors at the company’s brewery in Mills River, North Carolina, found the design defect and reported it last week. You can head over to Sierra Nevada’s website to see if your state has been affected by the recall.

Here’s How to Get Free Burgers From Shake Shack

Shake Shack is one of the last fast-food chains to launch an app, but we don’t mind the wait because it comes with free burgers!

All you have to do is create an account and use the promo code “shackappy.” The deal is good from now until Feb. 28, so there’s plenty of time to cash in on free beef. After that, you can use the app to order ahead and cut down on wait time.


Eataly Partners With Amazon Prime for At-Home Tastings and Lessons

Eataly is celebrating a decade of Italian cuisine and wine with an all-new partnership with Amazon Prime Now called “Order in an Eatalian.” You can already order Eataly goods as of last year, but now if you’re a member and you make an Eataly purchase of $25 or more, you can have an Italian cuisine or wine expert show up at your kitchen to help you make tiramisù from scratch, learn how to taste wine like an expert, or make homemade pasta. It sounds too good to be true, but the only catch here is that the deal is only good for orders on one day: Jan. 27.

Cheesecake M&M’s Are Here in Time for Valentine’s Day


The latest limited-edition, romantically themed M&M’s flavor is White Cheesecake. The bag of pink, white, and yellow M&M’s comes with three separate flavors, cheesecake, white chocolate, and graham cracker crust, which when consumed together tastes — we assume — like white chocolate cheesecake. Only Walmart is selling them from now until Valentine’s Day, so get them while you can.
