Tonight, Three Twins ice cream is launching the long-awaited new Mexican Chocolate flavor inspired by Giants' pitcher Sergio Romo, who's made his share of statements, both fashionably and politically, over immigration reform.
Last year, at the World Series parade, Romo caught his fair share of attention sporting his "I just Look Illegal" t-shirt. Not only did he make headlines with that shirt, but the NorCal-based Three Twins Ice Cream decided it was the perfect tagline for a Mexican chocolate flavor treat. And thus "It Just tastes Illegal" was created.
Via Facebook, Three Twins is offering a chance to win free tickets to this Ice cream social with Sergio. The only thing you need to know to enter is your email address.
Proceeds from the new ice cream will reportedly go toward supporting immigration reform efforts.
Romo, who was born in Brawley California, about 30 miles north of the Mexican border, has been known to literally wear his Mexican-American proudly. Another favorite shirt of his: "Made in the USA with Parts From Mexico."
In addition, he's been a staunch supporter of Dreamers, or young immigrants who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children and who are seeking a path to citizenship. Watch Romo explain his views in this video:
In any event, good luck getting in on that ice cream tonight.
