Ice Cream Issues...

Okay, I have a complaint...
.
Has anyone else noticed the Ice Cream Cartons suddenly getting smaller?
At first, I thought that it was just my perspective...
(As I get bigger, everything else in the world seems smaller by comparison.)
.
.
But NO! It is not just an illusion...
The Dreyers Ice Cream Cartons have recently become like 2/3 the size.
What the..?
.
This is a problem for me because of the sheer volume, that I, alone, consume on a daily basis.
(I need you all to refer me to THIS particular craving when I am complaining about the size of my hips & thighs post-pregnancy this Fall...
Ice Cream, alone, will account for at least 10 extra pounds!)
So why the sudden container size decrease?
Is this someone's vain attempt to cut down on my consumption?
Cuz it ain't workin' folks...I'm just buyin' more!
(And the price is the still the same per container... I might add...Blast those dang gas prices!)
.
So... where do I write? And who's with me?

The carton says half the fat. They want to think you are doing yourself a favor but really it is just because there is only half as much in there. HAHA

funny! I would be upset too...if I hadn't totally boycotted ice cream!

I noticed that too, it ticks me off! Mike brought home some ice cream home one day and only one was smaller and I was thinking, "What in the heck is going on here?" Let me know if you find anything out! It made me think twice about buying Ice Cream the other day because I didn't want to spend so much on a little carton. Maybe this could be good for me.

What is this world coming to when our Ice cream cartons are being shrunk? And If you eat that much ice-cream and still look as great as you, i want to kill you ....so not fair.

Better switch to the store brand! Let me know if I need to sign a petition!

ps.. what happened to the scorpion post? I went to pull it up to show Code and it was no longer there?

I love reading all your posts. You are just so dang cute. I wish I could eat alot of ice-cream and look like you do, even pregnant. I don't look that good pregnant. I just love all your posts about the hot dogs and the tatoo's and the room mate. Anyways, your darling.

All it will get you is a $0.50 coupon and an letter stating that they decreased the size of the containers to compensate for the rise in the cost of dairy products, sweeteners, nuts, fruits and energy used to make the ice cream. According to Dryers CEO, Tim Kahn, if they kept the carton the same size, then they would have to raise the price to $7.00.

They may be farther down the post... ignore me if they are!

I was so mad when I noticed that too! I had all my cartons on the table, ready to indulge, when I noticed that the new carton was an inch shorter than the others! I'm so bugged, so now I go for another brand. The NERVE! Don't mess with a pregnant woman! :)
