"We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our golden anniversary than by continuing to provide memorable ICEE moments for our beloved fans. We look forward to unveiling some of our most innovative and exciting flavors to date, including a surprise mystery flavor to satisfy adventurous taste buds," he added.
