A Russian company is taking advantage of frosty relations between its motherland and the United States.

The company, Slavitsa, released “Obamka” (translated to “Little Obama” ice cream bars to the dismay of U.S. officials.

The bars have a chocolate glaze and its packaging features a young African looking boy wearing an earring, Reuters reported.

“With different flavors and glazes, the ice cream symbolizes the main races of people on our planet,” the company said in a statement.

“Ice cream names need to be memorable. For those with a rich imagination, various associations might arise, but this product is for children and is a long way from politics,” it said.

A U.S. official who spoke to Reuters on the condition of anonymity didn’t find the lightheartedness in it.

“While I haven’t seen this particular product for sale, we are disappointed by the media-driven anti-Americanism that has become so prevalent in Russia over the past few years, particularly when it takes on a discriminatory or racist bent,” they said.

That’s cold.
