The milk shakes

The milk shakes


So far this year I have grudgingly paid 20c in the Union snack bar for an unchilled mixture of milk and syrup. I say 'grudgingly' as at Auckland Uni last year our milkshakes cost 15c with ice-cream included.

Imagine my delight when on Monday I was asked to pay only 15c for my milkshake—same contents!!

But on Wednesday the price was back to 20c—although the contents still had not changed. When I informed the girl serving me about their previous price, she told me that, owing to the fact that they were using double flavour now, the price was back to 20c.

I for one would willingly pay 15c and be prepared to get my single flavour. I did not ask for a double flavour, and anyway, with the amount of milk they use it tastes worse than the single flavour.
