Is nothing sacred?

I can put up with higher gasoline prices, more expensive fruits and vegetables. Heck even pricier bagels. But ice cream?

The Globe's Megan Woolhouse gets the scoop (sorry) on the process from the farm to the freezer. It's a chilling story of globalization and the interdependence of seemingly diverse factors combining to jack up prices.

It also raises an interesting question: why exactly are we exporting so much corn to China?
