My kids got really excited today when they heard the theme from Greensleeves being played in the distance, and with much enthusiasm, patiently waited for Mr Whippy to arrive. We rushed out to get an ice cream and I nearly fell over when I read the price listings;
— $8.00 for a plain single cone,
— $5.00 for a tiny kiddies cone … and
NO CHOC DIP.
I was forced to cough up, as the kids would have been devastated – but I feel really ripped off.
Is it just me, or do others think that $8.00 is unbelievably RIDICULOUS for a plain single cone???
Does he get any repeat business at those prices?
