Have the prices of any foods in your local supermarkets skyrocketed recently?


Which prices have increased dramatically and do you still purchase those items?

    Exactly right! Our teacher taught us about this in the 1960s, telling us that a candy bar used to extend to the end of the wrapper, but now had room at both ends. I didn't notice other changes until the 1980s and as you say, all became smaller!

    That is scary, indeed. I also find that coupons available in my area require me to purchase 2 to 5 of a single item in order to receive only 35 cents to 50 cents discount. Stores used to have marked-down items on a dedicated rack, also disappearing.

    There seems to be no reason for some of these price increases!

    OMG! I heard that prices are going up again in January as well, especially beef - because of a drought (?)

    That's quite a high increase and I bet shoppers are cutting back, but some people must be suffering lack of food. I do not know how USA has a Velveeta shortage AND tons of "govt cheese" commodities in warehouses. Ohio - 6 years of corn warehoused.
