Inflation is with us and shows no signs of abating. I drive by gas stations, agog at the prices. When a package of my favorite potato chips went from $2.99 to $3.29 a few months ago, I accepted that. I get it that interest rates are rising, and mortgages are more expensive. My grocery bill for one person now looks like my old grocery bills for both of us.
But over these recent months, my one “cannot-live-without” treat had happily stayed the same price. Until Saturday.
Trader Joe’s coffee ice cream went from $3.99 to $4.50 per quart!
Will I eat less coffee ice cream? Never!
