While food shopping today, I was very excited because Edy’s ice cream was on sale at Acme for only $1.99 per carton. Considering the regular price is usually around $6-$7, this was a great deal! After picking up items at various stores, we made our way to Acme. On the short drive there, I considered which flavor I wanted to get. I’m a chocolate gal, so I knew it would be chocolate based. But I also love peanut butter. And fudge. And the crazy flavors! As I listed possible flavors in my head, my stomach started grumbling.
We pulled into the parking lot and I still hadn’t made up my mind. As we made our way to the frozen food aisles, I started getting excited. There, on the endcap, were the remaining cartons of Edy’s. I started to browse through them, pulling out the ones I wanted. First it was chocolate fudge. Then peanut butter explosion. Or did I want sherbert? The endcap freezer had already been rifled through by a lot of customers, so I decided to see if the normal ice cream aisles had any more flavors.
Boy, am I glad I did! I had assumed that only the “regular” flavors were included in the sale, and not the premium flavors. The premium flavors are rarely included in sale prices. But when I opened the freezer doors, I found the Girl Scout cookie flavors with the $1.99 price tag! Immediately, I grabbed a Thin Mints carton. But then I saw the Tagalongs carton. Which one did I want?! While I debated, my fiance grabbed them both and said, “Just buy both of them. You know you want them!” He already had a carton of Strawberry Cheesecake in his hand.
“You know this means we’ll have to do two separate orders, right? It’s limit two per customer,” I told him, as I balanced my two cartons.
“I know. We’ll just pay separately. No way are you going to be able to decide between Tagalongs and Thin Mints,” he said with a smile.
He was right. We made our way to the self-checkout and I held the freezing cartons in my arms, very excited about the delicious ice cream I would have for the next couple of weeks!
