The entire world was watching on the 11th of June when Donald Trump met with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un, yesterday, Monday. It was one of the first times an American politician has set foot on North Korean soil in a long time.
According to reports from the mainstream media, including from publications like CNN and the New York Times, there were a lot of vague concessions and talks of disarmament but nothing was actually agreed upon.
And for the most part, Kim Jong-Un didn’t agree to any specific action regarding his nuclear arms program. And while that may or may not be the case, most of the social media world was more concerned with their choice of food.
Reportedly, Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump, as well as many other politicians there, feasted on things like prawns, fresh octopus, and Korean stuffed cucumber.
Following that delicious meal, they also ate beef short ribs, sweet and sour pork with fried rice, and soy-braised codfish for the main course. And for dessert, they ate Haagen-Dazs ice cream topped with cherry coulis.

And it didn’t take a very long time for users on social media to point out the fact that Haagen Dazs was able to make it on to their dinner plates – or dessert plates, to be more precise.
Some Twitter users joked, “I can’t believe that Donald Trump and the leader of North Korea ate iced cream together. It’s craziness.”
Another added, “it’s almost like Haagen Dazs had to pay serious money to get their product on that dinner table. Do you think we’re going to see a spike in Haagen Dazs sales after this?”
Many others made fun of Donald Trump, who is supposedly a very picky eater. The president of the United States is famous for loving fast food and apparently drinks more than six cans of diet Coke a day.
