Wherever you live, I’m sure you’ve witnessed how much the price of food as escalated this past year.

Every time I walk into a grocery store, I find myself wide-eyed and muttering out loud, “Holy shit.…can the price of food get ANY higher???”

I honestly don’t know how people with families manage.

It’s getting to the point where it’s cheaper to actually dine out, than buy food and eat at home.

Personally, I shop at two stores, either Trader Joe’s or Super Fresh.

Trader Joe’s is usually more economical, but even their prices are getting high.

Super Fresh is one of those stores that I only shop when I need odds and ends, because their prices are normally WAY higher than most grocery stores. Every once in a while I’ll catch a good sale, but most of the time for the prices I pay there, I could buy a 10 acre villa in Rome, Italy!

A few days ago, I popped into Super Fresh to grab a few things because I was walking around that area of the city.

As you all know, I love apples more than my own life, so I picked up THREE to get me through a few days, but didn’t notice the sign which displayed a ‘weight price’ rather than a ‘single price’ for each apple.

I will ALWAYS check my receipt before leaving the store because Super Fresh is notorious for NOT ringing the sale price at the cash register. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve discovered mistakes.

After checking my receipt, which was correct by the way, my eyes suddenly noticed one of the most expensive items…

$4.28 for THREE apples?!?!?

I remember a time when I could buy a whole BAG of apples for $2.95.

I also remember a time when a five-stick pack of Wrigley chewing gum was 35 cents.

But rather than return the apples and use the money for a down payment on a Rolls Royce, I decided to keep the fruit and enjoy them, because for $4.28 they must be GREAT-tasting apples, right?

Yet, how did these three apples taste?

Well, I’ll show you…..

Yup, I paid $4.28 to eat balls of STYROFOAM!


Talk about lack luster.

An apple a day might keep the doctor away, but at these prices…it’s cheaper to just keep the doctor close to you!

Have a SUPER FRESH weekend everyone!
