What's the Deal : Feeding That Craving for Ice Cream

When you absolutely must have ice cream, you can splurge or scrimp--on both price and fat. Here's the cost to your wallet and your waist.

* Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk ice cream (chocolate flavor with pecans, walnuts, chocolate-covered almonds and white and dark chocolate chunks), 240 calories and 17 grams of fat per 4-ounce scoop, 63% fat, $1.70 plus tax.

* Haagen-Dazs Caramel Cone Explosion bar, 350 calories and 23 grams of fat per 93-gram bar, 59% fat, $3.95 for package of three.

* Jersey Maid Rocky Road ice milk, 100 calories and 2 grams of fat per half-cup serving, 18% fat, $2.89 for half a gallon.

* "My Cone," a 32-inch-by-24-inch poster of a little girl sitting under a tree holding a half-eaten cone with a drooling dog nearby, fat free, $12 at Prints Plus, Glendale Galleria.
