Full Tilt Ice Cream has grown famous in the Puget Sound Area for their unique flavors of ice cream like “Easter Peeps,” “Dill Pickle” and many other unique flavor combinations.
But their newest, politically charged flavor is gaining national attention – introducing “Peach Mint.” A flavor Full Tilt has launched in celebration of the forward motion of the impeachment of US President Donald Trump.
When asked about fears of alienating potential customers, Full Tilt’s Owner Justin Cline had this to say:
“Ice Cream is supposed to be fun; when conceiving this flavor we didn’t set out to offend anyone. Most of our team and customers ARE deeply offended by children being locked in cages and the incessant harm caused by Trump on a daily basis. This isn’t just about removing Trump, this is meant to be one small gesture of encouragement for America’s lawmakers and leaders to continue to do the right thing. Bad things happen when good people do nothing. This is about honoring the ‘something’ that is finally being done.”
Cline went on to explain that a percentage of all sales from Full Tilt’s “Peach Mint” ice cream will be donated to the International Rescue Committee, an organization founded by Albert Einstein, and devoted to helping immigrants and refugees whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.
“All are welcome at Full Tilt no matter their political affiliation, but if you support the values of the I.R.C. and want Trump gone, come on by for a scoop of Peach Mint,” Cline added.
Peach Mint Ice Cream will be available at all five Seattle area Full Tilt Locations – including right here in White Center – through December of 2019.
