The ice-cream brand is apologizing for putting fortune cookie pieces in its commemorative “Taste the Lin-Sanity” flavored ice-cream.

The fortune cookies were swapped out for a fresh waffle cone cookie on the side after complaints of racial insensitivity.”
Sometimes, when you go Humphry Slocombe, its hard to decipher what you are eating because corn flakes and some sort of alcohol in your ice cream is great and confusing all at the same time.
