A friend of mine, who is an instigator, sent me a link to this story, I’m sure he wants me to declare a boycott of Hudsonville Ice Cream, a local maker of the good stuff….mmmm, me like ice cream. But I haven’t eaten Hudsonville Ice Cream since I discovered Edy’s Slow-Churned Light ice cream, ding (free samples would be cool). But come on, why in the hell would they name an ice cream after a guy who is attempting to gut Michigan of our rights and drive people out of the state, especially seniors? Maybe it is the huge tax breaks they more than likely got from the corporate owned Snyder. From one of our local TV stations website, WOOD TV8…
HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) – Gov. Rick Snyder is scheduled to tour a West Michigan ice cream maker Wednesday and try out two new flavors created in his honor.
The Hudsonville Creamery and Ice Cream Co. has created the two new items containing candy and flavorings from Jogue, a company based in Northville.
Snyder is scheduled to try out the new flavors during a Wednesday morning visit to the ice cream company’s Holland plant.
Later, the governor plans to present the first “Reinventing Michigan” award to Energetx Composites Inc. of Holland.
He’s also scheduled to speak at the annual Tulip Time Festival luncheon before putting on a traditional Dutch costume complete with wooden shoes and marching with first lady Sue Snyder in the Tulip Time parade.
You see that protesters, he’s going to the Tulip Time Festival in Holland. Is it road trip time?
As far as a boycott goes, I personally won’t be buying their ice cream anymore but I would hate to see the people who are employed there get hurt because their corporate overlords are right-wing nuts. Did Governor Granholm have any ice cream named in her honor, I don’t know. Maybe.
