I just stopped by the local convenience store to buy an ice cream. I have always loved Polar Bars, the chocolate covered ice cream on a stick bar that used to cost 75 cents. Well it used to cost a lot less than that when I was a kid. With just a quarter, I used to buy a coke, a bag of potato chips and a fudge sicle, and still have a nickel left.
Anyway, as I was saying, I attempted to buy an ice cream. The store didn’t have polar bars, but the guy at the checkout said the Magnum Classic was essentially the same thing with a fancier package. The bugger! He neglected to explain that there was another difference as well. The Magnum Classic Polar Bar imitation cost $3.89! $3.89 for a ice cream bar! For that price, the ice cream would have to lick itself!
I didn’t buy the thing, instead I visited another convenience store and found a box of polar bars for $2.89, a dollar cheaper than that Magnum thingy.
