This is messed up: Häagen-Dazs is reducing the size of their ‘pints’. Thank you to the good folks at Serious Eats to let us in on this travesty. This is another case of downsizing, while companies charge the same amount for getting less product. Don’t believe me? Take a look at a container of Breyer’s Ice Cream some time. It sure isn’t a half gallon anymore. This downsizing stinks.
On the plus side, more of my ice cream spending dollars will be going to Ben & Jerry’s. They have announced that they won’t change their sizes and will continue to serve a true pint. So goodbye tasty flavors of Häagen-Dazs and hello to the full pint goodness of Ben & Jerry’s! I’ll be indulging in their Strawberry Cheesecake (formerly called Primary Berry Graham during the ’04 election), Chubby Hubby, and Imagine Whirled Peace!
Binge ice cream eaters and heartbreakees will appreciate those extra two spoonfuls of ice cream when the going gets tough. Thank you Ben & Jerry’s. No thank you Häagen-Dazs.
