Thank you for your recent e-mail. We appreciate the time you took to reach out to us and want you to know that your feedback is very important to our company.
As a fan, we hope you know how committed we are to making the tastiest and freshest treats. With more than 40 flavors of Ice to choose from, unfortunately we have to make room for exciting new flavors by retiring some of our less popular ones.
Although we hate to see a grown man cry, our licensing agreement for Bubblicious expired and was not renewed. We apologize to your husband that he is disappointed and hope he falls in love with another flavor.
Rita’s is a franchise company with more than 500 stores in 18 states. It is our pleasure to serve you and we look forward to seeing you at Rita’s again soon.

I was discouraged, but not completely deterred. Today, I went across the street and inquired about the beloved Bubblicious. The manager told me they only had one more batch left to make. It hadn't been prepared yet, but she offered to call me when it was ready. Then she made me even happier when she said they'd make it today, as soon as they had room for it.
I got the call.
And I got a veritable crapload of ice:
Two-and-a-half gallons, to be precise.
That ought to hold him for a while.
On a side note, I received an email notice that my medal from the Foodie Wife Hall of Fame is being shipped via UPS and should arrive sometime Tuesday.
