SANTA CRUZ (AP) —The owners of a Santa Cruz ice cream shop have received a sweet surprise: a thank-you phone call from Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden made the call to Zach Davis and Kendra Baker—owners of the 2-month-old Penny Ice Creamery—on Wednesday to thank them for a YouTube video the two made praising the economic stimulus act.

Stimulus funds provided the backing Davis and Baker needed to obtain a $250,000 loan to start the artisanal ice cream shop.

On the five-minute call, Biden called the YouTube clip “damn good” and said he was coming for ice cream.

A video of the call was posted on the vice president’s Web page.

Baker told the Santa Cruz Sentinel she was honored and proud tohave received the call.
