      Really great article! I almost wish it were longer or had additional installments. I could easily spend another 30 minutes reading about the custom "squints" machine debacle or any of the other fascinating details each on their own.

        Agreed on the squints. I just googled the image of the squint and whoa! the packaging really took me back. I agree with the husband-co-owner that there is a really fun idea there that someone will come along to make work in a forward-focus-nostalgic-fashion.

      Anyone know if the ice cream is as good now as it used to be?

      Such a Delicious Read. Too delicious, in fact, as it gave me anxiety and now I need a pint of Coconut Bliss for calm recovery.

      Fascinating look at how a company can be a success and a failure simultaneously.
