Whats the world coming to? Four Dollar Ice Cream Bars, that’s what

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.

  1. I am a weirdo that doesn’t like a lot of sweet stuff – but, that pic sure looks good! I agree with you on the price! Geesh! (we have a version here of Polar Bars called Eskimo Pies) you made me want one! 🙂
