I've had some crap this summer

I've posted about places that I like, and I'm not bringing them up, again, here. I've had some so-so, and crap soft serv this summer, that I have not bothered to post about. Some that I had today is not even as good as the stuff that they serve on Navy ships, but I paid full price. ($5.75 for a small hot fudge sundae that was actually more like medium). I'd have rather paid more for a better product. Can any pros here tell us the cost for a cone of junk vs a come of premium soft serv? I'm willing to bet that it is not enough of a difference to cause customers not to return.
 
For those who have not had Navy soft serv, it is not bad, considering that it starts with powder and water. A land based ice cream shack, with access to good suppliers, should, IMO, do better.

    We have http://www.ilovezesto.com/index.php and http://www.ilovechillers.com/
    They are the same people. I get a large Vanilla in a hand rolled sugar cone with rainbow sprinkles for under
    $5 , worth every cent. It is a LARGE.
    We also have http://pollysfreeze.com/
    This place is worth checking out. They have a full menu , I have been going there for 30 years now.
    This was Mayor Al's local favorite ice cream stop. They do a lot of business.

    Dairy Queen is still hard to beat for a $1.

    IMO, if the folks who do NOT have a line this time of year, were to go to a place that DOES have a line, and eat a cone, they might change their ways. Karl is right. Dairy Queen puts out a nice product at a good price. A lot of places charge more for worse....
