You didn't know there was one? Well, there is, and if your ice cream addiction is in any way as hopeless as mine, you will suffer in the future.
Some months ago, my all-time favorite premium ice cream, the Costco house-brand vanilla, went missing. The store's people were no help: "Sometimes things disappear. They don't tell us anything." I called national customer support. They didn't know, but they suggested I call the head regional buyer and gave me the number. (Costco actually believes in customer support, and actually talking to the customer is part of that.)
Left a message, assumed there'd never be an answer, but ... ! Within an hour, got a call from the head buyer for the Southeast US, who told me that she, too, was suffering an ice cream withdrawal crisis. Seems that Costco had made the decision to suspend production in the face of an unprecedented vanilla shortage. She noted that prices had skyrocketed, but worse: quality of available vanilla was bad. Costco, which does not market crap, ever, sadly withdrew the product.
That happened about six or eight months ago. Today I found this.
