I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from work tonight, and I spent a good 5 minutes staring and pacing in front of the freezer where they sell the ice cream. I was flabbergasted, flumoxed, shocked, aghast, enraged and indignant!
Remember how ice cream used to be sold in half gallon containers? For the past year or two (or longer?) they’ve been sold in 1.75 quart containers, which is 8 ounces short of a half gallon. OK. Yogurt containers somehow went from 8 ounces to 6 ounces aroudn the same time.
But today. TODAY! The ice cream of my favorite supermarket brand (Edy’s, which I believe is known as Dreyers in other parts of the country) was being sold in 1.5 quart containers! For the same price as the 1.75 quart containers of course! And they even looked short and squat!
I bought a different brand, which is, for now, still sold in the larger (but still less than half gallon!) size, but I am peeved!!
I discovered the same thing last week when I went to buy Breyer’s new flavor. 1.5 and the same price as 1.75 (both were on sale that day, which is the only reason I was considering it in the first place). Sneaky, sneaky bastards.
