Food prices can be a deciding factor when it comes to our dining choices. But sometimes, an unexpected increase in the cost of a beloved item can lead us to reevaluate our preferences. Join us as we discuss the tipping point when a food price hike finally made you say, “No, thank you.” From favorite snacks to comfort foods, this is a space to share the story of the food that you once enjoyed but had to leave behind due to soaring prices. Let’s explore the factors that influence our culinary decisions and the moments that prompt us to seek alternatives.
Once you pop, the fun won’t stop! That is until the price rose to almost $3 for a tube! One person said that even ALDI’s brand alternative has risen to an obscene price. The fun is definitely coming to a screeching stop.
No specific brand but ketchup as a whole has risen in price over the past few years. A 32 oz bottle of ketchup is almost $5. If you have some ketchup lovers in your family, you may want to start rationing the amount they get to use daily!
A standard box of big-brand cereal starts at around $4 but can skyrocket towards $7! But one person let people in on a little secret. She states that her husband works for a big brand cereal company, and they actually package the store or generic brand cereal with all the same stuff! Don’t be ripped off again.
If you hadn’t heard already, Dominos is now charging for delivery. Pizza Hut’s large pizza is almost $18, and Papa John’s deal where you could get a 10-slice pizza for $3 has now risen to $20! These pizza chains must have really great pizza.
For 24 cans of Coca-Cola Original, you are looking at about $17. That is about $1.50 a can of soda. However, drinking soda is not very healthy for you. So maybe this price increase will allow some to drop it from their diet completely!
The hazelnut spread that everyone seems to love has increased their prices to around $8 a jar. Nutella and peanut butter are among the best sandwich combos ever. But, with those prices, people may start sticking to the old-school PB&J.
A fish found in multiple places around the world, Salmon has become one of the priciest fishes in the grocery store. Going from around $10 to $25 a pound. It all depends on which species of salmon you decide on. But one salmon lover says that they used to eat it once a week and now haven’t bought it in years because of the price increase.
Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream
Ben and Jerry’s ice cream is made in Vermont and is known around the world for being some of the tastiest and most creative ice cream brands around. Some of their ice creams are named: Chunky Monkey, Phish Food, and Churray for Churros! You’ll be paying a high price if you want to try any of the mentioned flavors, or any flavors for that matter. A pint is sitting at around $5.
Friday was a Chinese takeout night in many households when people were growing up but not anymore. People agree that the price of Chinese takeout has risen far too high, and they had to find another option for their Friday night dinners.
Chips and salsa are often the first food combo people say they couldn’t live without. The price of jarred salsa may make them change their mind. A normal 15 oz jar is going for $5.50. You’re better off making your own!
At around $8 a bag, ravioli makes the not buying this week list for many grocery shoppers. Many are opting to make their own meat sauce or alfredo and using spaghetti or a cheaper pasta option to get their ravioli fix.
Egg prices have increased greatly in the last couple of years. They are around $2 a dozen, and this has put a sour taste in many shoppers’ mouths. Some suggested heading to your local farmer’s market and picking up farm fresh eggs. They will be a little expensive but last longer and often have a better taste.
SPAM, also known as meat in a can, is a quick salty dinner or snack option. Many shoppers remember eating it when they couldn’t afford anything else. Now they can’t even afford it! One can of SPAM will cost you around $4.
If you’re looking for a quick and cheap burst of energy, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Red Bull is around $3 for 12 fl oz. This is a price many are not willing to pay when it comes to energy drinks!
Finally, McDonald’s hashbrowns are no longer a cheap option for breakfast. One hashbrown will set you back $2! You might as well spend $8 to get an entire meal that includes a breakfast sandwich, drink, and hashbrowns!
