we bought a container of ice cream, today ; what usedto be a 1/2 gallon[ 64 ounces] is now 48 oz.; that's a pint ( 4 servings) less, product.They cannot pack it in a smaller container or we might notice?
How much more CO$T will they Add to our summer treats?
and what about cookies/&pastry?
How do you plan to react  this new  "cost of living"  nightmare?

Too bad we can't grow vanilla beans in our gardens. In Nebraska I don't
think they will grow.

Hi SARA S;
I think vanila beans are related to orchids;if so you might be able to grow them in a green house in the same conditions as orchids;expensive but it could end up being cost effective?Money mouth

When we went to Tahiti, we visited a vanilla bean plantation, and growing vanilla beans is very complicated and risky business.  This particular place they had to pollenate the flowers by hand.  I bought a couple of beans on Moorea, and they were very expensive, but very fresh and not hard. ( not like the ones you get when you buy them "packaged").

I guess there isn't much we can do about it.  Everything seems to be going up these days.  I just try to buy what we need and stock up when things go on sale.
