Image via WikipediaReally enjoyed this interview of Dreyer's CEO in today's SFGate.com. Interesting that ice cream sales are up in this down economy. Says something about how we drown our sorrows in ice cream. Also loved this anecdote.
"And a younger woman came up to me and she said, "Are you the ice cream guy?" And I said, "What do you mean?" She said, "Well, are you the Dreyer's guy?" I said, "Yeah I guess, kind of, I'm supposed to be the next president." And she said, "Well, there are about 15 little kids in the backyard who want your autograph."
Now there is nothing I could have done in life that would've caused kids to ask for my autograph. Not a musical talent, not sports, nothing I could have achieved. And that wasn't because of me, it's because ice cream is so essential to people."
