Straight Talk Crunch

Baskin-Robbins is introducing two new flavors of ice cream in honor of the presidential election: "Straight Talk Crunch" and "Whirl of Change."

Reporters traveling with John McCain got to sample the former today: a tasty blend of white chocolate, caramel, crunchy nuts, and a bit of red hot peppermint.

(No Whirl of Change was served on McCain's campaign plane, so I can't offer an informed opinion of which is better. )

Baskin Robbins is partly owned by Mitt Romney's old firm, Bain Capital, but that may not be a signal of McCain's upcoming VP announcement.
