Super-Ultra-Premium Ice Cream

default-image

What is up with all the expensive new ice creams? Everyone's favorite dessert has suddenly reached the level of an Hermés Birkin bag. Milk Made, a new ice cream subscription service in Brooklyn, has a waiting list for the privilege of paying $16 a pint ($50 for 3 pints delivered over 3 months). Carmela's (quite delicious) Ice Cream in Los Angeles now sells online for about $11 a pint (with a minimum order of 6 for $70). And Virginia's Perfect Flavor, which makes all-organic custom blends, is charging a whopping $30 per pint (at least 4 pints per $120 order). Perfect Flavor at least attempts to explain the sticker shock,  but if $10 per order goes to a cryptic "everything else," it doesn't elicit much sympathy.
