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. Not exactly sweet news for manufacturers. . .
Or consumers. As a result of the price change, Huffington Post predicts that ice cream prices will increase by 10 percent. This is sure to lead to less visits to Dairy Queen, and more stories from dad about him buying a cone for a nickel.
How much are you willing to spend on ice cream, and will this price increase mean the end of your summer treat? Talk about it in the comment section!
