From the Department of Handwritten Labels

OK. What we’re going to say now is going to sound like something from All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, but it’s true: What’s inside is what matters most.

Mispronunciation Hall of Fame

There’s no denying that Feuerzangenbowle Sorbet, our special Cyber Monday flavor, was a mouthful of a name.
