The bar! In 1920, in Youngstown, OH, a candy man named Harry Burt created a chocolate coating for ice cream. Burt's son suggested freezing sticks used for their Jolly Boy Suckers into the ice cream to make a handle. The Good Humor bar name came from the belief that a person’s attitude was related to their "sense of taste". Burt outfitted a fleet of 12 trucks with freezers and bells from his son’s sled to sell his creation... and the rest is history :)

Alisa-pedia! Thx for this fab history. Harry Burt cooled me down on many o hot Encino days in the 70s. Love that Good Humor means a "sense of taste."

I absolutely love every bit of this! The name and the about are awesome, but the thing I dig the most (did you catch that lingo😂!) is the heart and soul of YOU that gives you the gumption to pivot and shift in a direction that is more in alignment with who you truly are. From a reader's perspective this feels right (and keep in mind I was a big fan of Aging Gratefully) and it's damn inspiring. I cannot wait to see what Good Humor is going to get up to. Well done CK!!

I am a sucker for a pooch in glasses... I think the rebrand suits you. I like the Argyle quote, but I was also reminded of the 1950's classic! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsC8rnP6gss

I was wondering when someone was going to bring up the ice cream bar. You’re the cultural Empress. ❤️👠🧡🩷Which came first? The bar or the movie?

Hurray for commode reading! I'm the only one in my family who understands the necessity for good reading material in the bathroom. 😉

I like the the new name, but I'm pleased that "Aging Gratefully" will hang around as a monthly feature.
