Increased Ice Cream Prices? Say It A’int So!

Let’s hope the ice cream man takes Visa.

Huffington Post reports today that this summer may lead to high temperatures and even higher prices for ice cream. According to the article, a shortage of vanilla pods this year has led to a “surge in vanilla prices.” In two months, the price of vanilla went from $25 / kilo to $40 / kilo.
