French & # 39; s, in collaboration with Coolhaus Ice Cream, issued a mustard ice cream, available only for a limited time.

The war on ice cream is raging on.

From Blue Bell lickers to worse offenses, it's been a tough summer for the frozen treat.

And now, just in time for National Ice Cream Day on Friday, brands are coming to the action with their own mixes in what some call " crimes against humanity ."

A day after French's announced mustard, Oscar Mayer takes it a step further and seems to answer the perpetual question of a hot dog being a sandwich.

It's now an Ice Dog Sandwich and comes with spicy mustard gelato all on a cake bowl.

"Who only eats mustard @Frenchs? Was made for Oscar Mayer hot dogs," the hot dogs brand tweeted on Thursday . "Say hello to the Oscar Mayer Ice Dog Sandwich – flavored ice cream, made with our better sausages, squeezed with spicy mustard."

Oscar Mayer states that the new establishment will be available in New York City on August 12, but if you are not in the area and sends the company a direct message on Twitter you may be able to try it through a limited giveaway.

With his tweet Oscar Mayer conducts a poll asking him if people want to try the conscience. With three days left, 77% of the 3,400 votes chose "No-I eat spices solo" and 23% said "Yes! ASAP, please!"

Some Twitter users asked if it was a joke and reminded the brand that the date was August 1st and not April 1st.

Others, including Twitter user @Ya_Nasty __ asked that the brand not do so: "The world is messy enough already without this evil being let go."

In one answer, Oscar said Mayer: "We are hot dog fanatics and would NEVER get a taste that is not delicious!"

Raise a pint for International Beer Day

Beer lovers, here's a reason to justify a happy hour Friday. August 2 is International Beer Day.

This relatively new composite holiday was first celebrated in 2008 and has no historical significance. It takes place annually on the first Friday of August, according to

International Beer Day is not to be confused with National Beer Day, which is celebrated April 7 because on that day in 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act came into force and allowed the sale of beer containing less than 3.2% alcohol remaining in the United States near the end of the ban.
