You don't get no ice cream

Food giant Unilever has vowed to stop marketing its products to children in order to tackle rising obesity rates.

The firm, which owns brands such as Twister ice cream and Popsicle ice lollies, said it would limit the use of cartoon characters in its advertising.

It also promised to stop using social media stars or celebrities "who primarily appeal" to children under 12.

Ads for Unilever ice creams have been pulled in the past over complaints they marketed unhealthy food to children.

The UK, Chile, Mexico and Ireland have all implemented stricter rules for children's advertising over the last decade.

However, the problem persists. In 2018 Cadbury, Chewits and Squashies sweets became the first companies to have online adverts banned under new rules targeting junk food ads for children in the UK.

And obesity was solved forever by pretending that ice cream doesn't exist.

It is illustrative to see how the gratuitous "two scoops' allegation against Trump is so easily used as a denigration. Whoever the food-preparer was who claimed that Trump got two scoops while everyone else didn't needs to be investigated aa a never-Trumper, who should not be allowed to provide food and serve the President. That leaker sounds like the kind of cook who spits on food.

Do you really find it hard to imagine that Trump wants extra? And that he gets a custom menu instead of eating what everyone else does? It's not really important enough to investigate, but:

Quote
The waiters know well Trump’s personal preferences. As he settles down, they bring him a Diet Coke, while the rest of us are served water, with the Vice President sitting at one end of the table. With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests. When the chicken arrives, he is the only one given an extra dish of sauce. At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else. The tastes of Pence are also tended to. Instead of the pie, he gets a fruit plate.

These were first hand observations by Time magazine reporters, not a leak from a whistleblowing waiter.

It would be funny if he were in the UK and they didn't let him have any ice cream.
