based on the theory
that most ice cream
fans would rather buy pint
s than half-gallon
containers, and even though the package says 2-3 servings
pint buyers keep it to themselves by eating ice cream out of the container
. The normal excuse
is that it saves dishes from having to be washed
This also goes hand in hand with the theory that pint buyers would rather pay high prices for extravagant brands (Ben and Jerry's, Häagen-Dazs, Godiva, Edy's Dreamery, hand packed pints from parlors) and gourmet flavors (Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz, Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle, Bailey's Irish Cream, New York Strawberry Cheesecake) than pay for plainer traditional flavors. Of course, all ice cream lovers really want is the perfect cookies & cream.
This sort of behavior is a true hallmark of either geekness, gluttony, good taste, or all three.
