    Default bananananananas

    bananas are also 49 cents/lb here.

    Have been for a couple years, usually.

    Texas Red Grapefruit are either 3 or 4/$1 right now.
    No way that cheap out of season.

    Stock up because on May 11th everything goes up.

    Food and Energy are the only things that should be measured by the CPI.
    Who gives a flying F*ck if the price of IPads and big screen TVs went down?
    The inflated prices expand the GDP which is then held up as evidence of a recovery.

    Here's an article about grocery chains trying to help out by eating some of the costs. Don't think they
    can keep this up much longer.

    Default Smaller sugar packaging....

    I work for a large sugar producer (cane sugar) and one of our big customers, Costco, insisted that we stop packaging in 5lb bags and start producing 4lb bags. Walmart and chain grocery stores backed the change and now you pay just as much for 4lbs of sugar as you did last year for 5lbs. Like most other quantity purchases, you're still better off getting the 10 or 25lb packages. A lot of people never noticed the difference and still thinking that they're picking up a five pound bag.

    Very true, I have seen several articles about how manufacturers are reducing product sizes in an attempt to keep shelf prices the same

    We're at the point about now when a buy 1- get 1 free offer is the same thing as what a regular size was 10-15 years ago, plus a bag of air. Now, you have to buy 2...to get what 1 equaled in the past. That's hidden food price inflation.
