Same could be said between fine dining restaurants and going out to a local fast food chain. There is a huge difference in the quality of food you get and what you pay for.
For example go to a high end steakhouse and you get a quality product (Kobe, Wagyu Beef, Dry Aged Steaks). The price point will be much higher. Hell some steaks were up to $120-$150 in Columbus and Vegas for those. The same could be said with micro-creameires and their mix-ins, quality of their bases, and higher buttermilk fat % they use in their ice cream bases. Hence the price point.
Again not something you pay for a daily basis, but it comes down to the individual and what they value in quality. I buy ice cream online maybe a few times a year, and 6 pints would last me upward to 2 months.
Look at a typical american who drops
$5 everyday buying a starbucks drink
$7 daily in Cigs or dropping $30 in beer every weekend.
$10-15 going out to breakfast or lunch everyday.
I could find much worse ways to spend $120-125.
Besides groceries, bills, gas and go out to eat maybe 1-2x a month I don’t really buy anything else. I keep my supplement intake limited, so I am not always buying the next pre-workout or protein to hit the market. Therefore if I budget for something I will spend the extra money to treat myself.
