Pricey ice creams

Guess I'm not the only one to be thinking about the price of ice creams - this article from yesterday's NY Times discusses whether artisanal ice creams are worth the high price. I'm in the camp of paying top dollar for quality - I'd much rather pay a small producer who takes the care to make really good  ice cream than give my money to the mass marketed brands. Besides, I agree with the statement that artisanal ice creams are an affordable luxury - to paraphrase Cookie Monster, I think of ice cream as a "sometimes food" so it doesn't bother me to spend $4 on a small scoop when it's a once in a blue moon. It probably helps that my favorite gelato can't be found in the Boston area...
