Cheers breaks the Haagen-Dazs cold chain

The Lims love desserts and ice-cream is one of their favourites.
Two Saturdays ago (Feb 14), they decided to have their cherry jubilee ala mode (that is, topped with ice-cream).
      So off they went to a Cheers Store and bought a tub of Haagen-Dazs macademia nut ice-cream.
      Imagine their disappointment when they arrived home, all eager to enjoy their dessert, but ended up discovering that the product was unfit for human consumption. 

Haagen-Dazs...icicles not ice-cream
      It was apparent that its cold chain had been broken. To keep ice-cream fresh and fit for consumption, it has to be stored at a temperature range which must not be broken.
      "It was quite obvious that the tub of ice-cream that we bought had melted and was put back in the freezer. It should have been discarded," a member of the Lims said.
       The irony of it all was that it was sold in a shop in the Tan Tock Seng Hospital.  I guess the health-conscious environment didn't help.
Cheers? Nothing to cheer about
