Can you even GET a half gallon of ice cream?
Ok, so I hear all the time that food/grocery prices have gone up over the past year. I have seen it but have not felt the pain too much until today. Can you BELIEVE that ice cream cartons are shrinking?? I was appalled - went to buy my favorite flavor of Edy's (for you westerners that is Dreyer's) and low and behold, the carton was sooo tiny! I remember in the "old days", maybe 5 years ago, you could buy a 1/2 gallon (for you non -math people that is 2 quarts) of ice cream. Then it shrunk to 1.75 quarts, and NOW---- 1.5 quarts and for the same price as when it was BIGGER. A travesty, I tell you. Now I believe all the reports. Hmm.... should I boycott the company? Nahh....better get a year's supply in my freezer before the prices go up again!!
