ICE CREAM FLAVORS RATIONED!
WPB Limits Number of Flavors
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Ice cream became a war casualty yesterday as the War Production Board (WPB) issued new instructions to manufacturers. Each state is limited to two grades of ice cream with a maximum of ten flavors per grade. Sherberts are even more limited at two flavors. The intent of the flavor restrictions is to reduce the amount of stock and the number of containers used by the industry. In conjunction with the limitations on ice cream, butter producers were asked to purchase cream on only three days each week. Additionally, butter cannot be packaged in cardboard for half- and quarter-pound units. This will reduce the industry’s use of cardboard, which is needed for war production.
