Looking for a delicious way to support literacy in Chicago Public Schools? Logan Square ice cream shop Pretty Cool Ice Cream has teamed up with Dave Scheidt, the Chicago-based writer of the newly released Mayor Good Boy, for a very unique ice-cream treat!
The Mayor Good Boy Pop
The ice cream treat celebrates the new graphic novel Mayor Good Boy, illustrated by Miranda Harmon. Published by Random House Graphic, Mayor Good Boy is available now at your local bookstore or public library.
As for The Mayor Good Boy Pop, it will be released for purchase at Pretty Cool Ice Cream on Friday, September 3rd, 2021. It features peanut butter ice cream in a cheese cracker shell (if the integral inclusion of cheese-flavored snacks is surprising to you, consider reading The Beat’s interview with Scheidt and Harmon here).
If you have food allergies, be aware that the cheese crackers are Carolyn’s Krisps, which are plant-based and gluten-free: this snack’s for everyone! And we mean everyone: Dana Cree, one of Pretty Cool Ice Cream’s owners, confirmed to Block Club Chicago that the flavor was even dog-friendly!
To taste The Mayor Good Boy Pop for yourself, you’ll need to visit Pretty Cool Ice Cream, located at 2353 North California Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, 60647. Tell them The Beat sent you (then kindly explain to the confused staff who we are)!
Ice cream can be civically responsible!
Do you want to ensure your snacking is bolstered by the delicious flavor of civic responsibility? Then The Mayor Good Boy Pop is the taste you’ve been searching for!
One dollar of each purchase will be donated to the Sit, Stay, Read charity.
One of my favorite things about @DaveScheidt and @MirandaMHarmon’s MAYOR GOOD BOY is how much it’s about making change in your local community — and there’s even backmatter to help get you started! pic.twitter.com/vWDGDFHR0f
