    Hook Me Up: Dips at Daybreak
    Using an orange as a bowl must make it healthier ... right?

    What's with this dessert for breakfast craze? First we have cupcakes at 9:30, and now this.

    Every morning this week, from 9 a.m.-noon, Gifford's Ice Cream & Candy Co. is offering $2 ice cream cones with your choice of breakfast cereal toppings. So, indulge in this sweet treat and kick those boring breakfast bars to the curb. Just please don't litter.

    For every cone sold, $1 will be donated to MostValuableKids.org, a D.C.-based non-profit that provides underserved children and service members with tickets to local music, sporting and entertainment events.

    The Ice Cream for Breakfast campaign also hopes to encourage people to indulge in the morning. As a Gifford's spokeswoman says, "It's dairy, it's calcium, it's all-natural, and gosh darn it you deserve it. Why not start your day off with dessert?"

    Hmm, I can think of one itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka-dot reason that's telling me otherwise.
