I occasionally get the urge to treat myself. The latest occurrence was in Patong when I walked past a Swensen’s. Ohhhh….. Rum Raisin. Or Mocha Almond Fudge. There are two Swensen’s in Patong, both charged 130 baht ($ 3.88) for a single scoop. And that is not your American super sized scoop, they are about 3/4 the diameter of what I remember getting in the US of A.
In Krabi, the Swensen’s charges 39 baht ($ 1.16) for the same scoop. You know that quote about things always being better in the wanting? Not this time.
