I've seen many posts on the high prices of food here on the Q.

Sure, most are more than I would pay, but I was checking out Costco.com this morning and I saw they were advertising 8.25 lbs. of Wagyu Beef Sirloin Roasts....and the cost.....

599.99😳😳😳😳😳

Im glad I wasn't drinking my coffee or my iPad screen would have been sprayed!!!! Holy buckets!!!!

Wagyu isn’t your typical beef. I’m not interested and I have no doubt the price has skyrocketed but it’s always been expensive. I saw it at $200/lb pre-2020.

Wow!  And I thought $4.99 for a dozen jumbo at Trader Joe's was a lot.  Not so long ago they were around $2!!

Some of the regular stores have that price on eggs, Walmart still has them for under 4.50. The carton and a half.

In Kansas we are thrilled that sales food tax is going down in the next 3 years and 2025 will be the end it. We are one of the highest states in the country where as some states don't have a food tax at all.

We do not have tax on on food here in MA.   That is just how much the super market is charging for a dozen of eggs.   I used to be able to go to B.J's and get 2 dozen for 9$   but they have been out for over a month.

Eggs here just hit $7/for dozen and a half.

 

Inflation hasn't "peaked"  just like it was never transitory. 

 

Wait till they ban your gas stove to cook them on. 🙄
