The Coppelia ice cream scoop has risen to nine pesos, and the Varadero to seven; according to a statement from the Havana government, which justifies the increase as part of an official policy to stimulate milk production, paying better prices to producers.

As part of the measures to stimulate agricultural production, the price of fresh milk was increased, which impacts the wholesale costs of industrial milk production, such as ice cream, the capital government said.

The note from the Havana government highlights the excellence of the ice creams sold in Coppelia, with good service; remembering that customers have the right to demand optimal products and service; criterion that does not coincide with that of the state journalist Fidel Díaz Castro who proposed handing over the management of the popular ice cream parlor to the military.

“Coppelia cannot be fixed. My proposal is to give it to the FAR,” Díaz Castro declared this Thursday on Facebook, a social network where he identifies himself as “Eldiablo Díaz.”

In February, Customers of the Coppelia ice cream parlor in Santa Clara criticized the poor quality of the soy ice creams, not at all creamy, with pieces of ice and - to top it off - very expensive.
