Let Them Eat Ice Cream!

This past weekend, we were at the store and since the ice cream was on sale, I wanted some. This Breyers Chocolate Crackle looked good. I reached in and grabbed a container...it was much easier to lift that usual. Was I getting stronger? But then, I examined it. It seemed ...smaller. I had to go to Steve to confirm my suspicions...it was .25 liters less than a normal "gallon," (which still isn't an actual gallon), of ice cream!

What ever happened to a genuine gallon that was actually a gallon! What are we...British!? I want a container of ice cream that will fill more than 1.5 bowls!

Isn't this America!? Aren't we fat for a reason!? I don't like it when food companies take it upon themselves to make us a diabetic, heart-disease free Nation. If I'm getting ice cream in the first place, chances are, I don't care about dietary guidelines and this 2,000 calorie a day business.

I want my giant-size bucket full of creamy goodness back! I demand it! I want it full-fat...full sugar...with lots of calories per serving!

(In case you were wondering, I did still get the ice cream and it was very delicious. It was one of those things that's fun to eat cuz of the crackle. If only I could've had more than one taste...)

  2. You know what THE BEST ice cream EVER made was/is...Thrifty's Chocolate Krackle Crunch. I still dream about it.

    I was so sad when Thrifty's went under and took my favorite flavor. Noble's Frozen Yogurt had it too...until they went under.

    The world is a little bleaker without it.

    At least there's Blue Bunny Cherry Chocolate Bordeaux to ease the pain.

  5. I would have to totally agree with you! :) I went to taco Bell the other day, It tasted like CRAP! Since they made everyone take all the transfat out of everything, nothing tastes the same. & I'm still a chunky monkey.. so what gives?

  6. Apparently, you can still get fat off healthy things like steak and potatoes.

    Ree...do you know something I don't?

  8. Amy, Jeremy and I just thought you seemed a little moody...... the lady at Sams club..... the ice cream being too small. Maybe hormones a little off? JK. Jeremy put me up to it. :)

  9. I totally noticed the Dreyers/Eddy's brand of ice cream thing this weekend and boycotted it. I was pretty ticked off!

  10. I should've boycotted it too...but you know how it goes when you really want something.

    Marie, I'm always moodier in the summer than the rest of the year. The heat makes me grouchy and irritable.
