The 1.5-quart tub of Breyer’s ice cream — previously 1.75 quarts, and before that an actual half-gallon — has finally shown up in my local store. Actually, I didn’t mind the 1.75 so much, since it fit perfectly in my freezer door. But I’m pleased to note that my grocer of choice turned these things loose with an initial price tag of a mere $2.98. How long this will last, I don’t know. Of course, if I wanted the Really Good Stuff and didn’t want to make a separate run to Braum’s, I’d have to shell out nearly $6 for Blue Bell, which won’t fit in the door, but which is still a half-gallon.
