Good ice cream turned bad

I bought two tubs of Haagen Dazs ice cream from the petrol kiosk last night. I drove home immediately and put them in the freezer. The happy kids opened up to find their favourite flavour (rum raisin) icy while the strawberry one was still creamy and smooth.

A couple of months ago, I had the same problem with a tub of Ben & Jerry's. The ice cream was yucky and icy, with a layer of settlement at the bottom. Nobody wanted to eat it.

Now a tub costs S$14.50 (US$10) here in Singapore. That amount can probably buy me three tubs in USA but the point is, it is a small luxury that I buy for the kids. If the ice cream turns out icy, the pleasure of eating premium ice cream is gone. I might as well buy the locally produced ones for alot less.

It's kind of silly to bring the tub all the way back to the petrol kiosk not knowing if they will give me a replacement. So here I am, complaining about it and wondering if anyone of you have had the same experience.

Agree, u shld have brought it back. Once i bought rice fm a petrol station and found it had weevils. Threw away the rice and complained the next time I went to station and the cashier just said, "you shld have brought it back; we'd replace for u and inform our suppliers."

Anyway, I only buy ice-cream fm Island Creamery and Fairprice housebrand lollies.
