How The Rising Price of Ice Cream
Will Help Keep Me Slim
Okay. So, as you all know, prices have been going up on everything lately, due to our completely out of whack economy. I, for the most part, don't have seriously expensive tastes, other than sushi, which by the way, I have't had in about a month now....
anyway.... I do have a few things that I'm just not gonna live without. Like some Haagen Dazs ice cream every now and then.
I have noticed that the price of ice cream has been steadily going up. A few years ago, you could get a pint of Haagen Dazs for about $3.00. Then, all this past year, the price has been creeping up to 3.75 and 4.00. Haagen Dazs ice cream bars are 2.75.
Well. Not having had my guilty little pleasure in over two months now, I decided to go to the store in search of some egg nog flavored HD. I about fell out of my boots after being informed that a pint of Haagen Dazs is now FIVE DOLLARS!!! I was like "WHAAAATTT??!" "You're lying, right?" The deli guy just shrugged his shoulders.
I am pissed! So, not to be deterred, I leave quickly and go to another store. THEY are charging $5.25!! What the hell is this, frozen gold or something? I am SO through! You can not be charging these kinds of prices for ice cream, yo! I'm sure that in some places, they are already selling it for $6 a pint. Won't be seeing MY money!
So, I came home empty handed. I REFUSE to pay that much for ice cream. Hell, you used to get a whole half gallon for less. So, no melty goodness for me. Until I can get to a supermarket and at least only be forced to pay $4 for it, that is.
On the upside, I won't have that pesky 1000 calories of fat to deal with later, will I? Nope! Gotta look at the bright side! ;)
