Philadelphia ice cream shop rolls out ImPeach Sundae
An ice cream parlor in Philadelphia is rolling out a new option for its customers: the ImPeach Sundae.
Franklin Fountain posted a photo of its new sundae option on Instagram.
The sundae is made up of peach ice cream “smothered in nuts from the cabinet, with a side of our orange colored Tomato Ice Cream topped with Cheetos,” according to the Instagram post.
“May be served with tiny demitasse spoon per request, to make any hands look huge,” the ice cream shop wrote in its Instagram caption, posted just weeks into President Trump’s term.
The shop’s co-owner, Eric Berley, told Billy Penn he came up with the idea for the sundae with help from his brother and business partner, who recommended the inclusion of Cheetos.
He told the website he has other ideas for future treats. He plans to come up with a recipe for bastani sonnati, a traditional Persian ice cream, as part of a “soft protest” against the president’s immigration policies, according to Billy Penn.
It’s meant as a “reference to sharing the message that being American is a melting pot of many countries, including our own heritage from both Eastern and Western Europe, with staff and family from around the world,” Berley said.
During the presidential primaries last year, the ice cream shop also created ice cream flavors for both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
