Not all ice cream is created equal. Aside from the ice cream's flavor and a myriad of mix ins from Haagen_Dazspeanut butter cups to cookie dough, there is one ingredient that you will find in every tub of ice cream - air. There are legitimate reasons for manufacturers to pump air into ice cream. For instance, it gives it a lighter texture. But, the problem is, you’ll never see a label that tells you exactly how much air you’re paying for.  With some brands, you might be surprised how little ice cream you are actually getting.

The year was 1943. The Second World War was raging in the Pacific and Europe and the Zoot Suit Riots were pitting soldiers against Latinos in Los Angeles. The atom bomb was still on the drawing board and it was 5 years before the first McDonald's opened. You could grab a hamburger from a good restaurant for 40 cents and get somMenu_1943Re curly fries for another 20. A Coke? That'll cost you another dime, mister. For a little more than a dollar you could substitute a steak for the hamburger and exchange the coke for a milkshake concocted with real milk and real ice cream.

I dug up all this information on a recent visit to Twohey's restaurant, an icon in the Los Angeles area. As I sat down to eat lunch with my family, a picture of their original menu beckoned and prices weren't the only thing that caught my attention. I'd like to share 7 lessons I learned from that 66 year old menu.

If you haven’t heard, there’s a grocery store war going on which makes this a great time to become a war profiteer. We’d like to suggest you get your guerrilla manuals out and engage in a layslittle hand to mouth combat. The big aggressor in this conflict is Wal-Mart. They’re claiming that price cuts on nearly 2,000 items will save the average shopper $28/Week. That works out to almost $1,500 a year and it’s a good place to start. But you don't have to head to Wal-mart to get ridiculous deals unheard of even a year ago. Target, Kroger, and Safeway are slashing their prices in response.  Here are some of the craziest deals.
