I just heard on the radio that peanut butter and peanut prices are expected to go from 650 dollars a ton to 1100 dollars a ton. They expect peanut butter prices to go up 60 percent
I have a back up, but I eat a lot too, this will affect me eventually.Thanks Turtle. I meant to post this the other day and forgot about it.
We went to the store on Sunday and I just about fell over. The double packs of Jif that we've been stocking up on went from $8.65 to... $11.68. Thankfully we have 11-12 of these on the shelf so we'll ride out this storm.
Yeah, even at DG I don't buy progresso--off topic, but DG and SaveaLot had the 26 oz chicken noodle and tomato for $1(generic Kaskey brand)---I thought since the 10oz was 70 cents, the $1 was great for 26 oz.I bought 2 plastic 1 gallon buckets of PB at the Mennonite Store for $8 each on Monday, maybe I should go buy more? :dunno:
not to hijack the thread but I just GOT PAID to take Progresso Soup off the shelf :2thumb: I normally don't buy it because it's pretty pricey normally
I laughed when I read this, great line Mike.After all when SHTF all the picky people will be dead.
When I was a kid my mom would make a pot of beans or spaghetti, whatever, and we ate it for lunch and dinner until it was gone. It did not matter if it took a week to finish it off, that was what we had for a meal. She very rarely made a meal that had meat, potatoes, a vegetable, dessert, etc. The only other thing that was put on the table was bread, salt/pepper, and of course, Tabasco.I laughed when I read this, great line Mike.
I see this a lot at work. One brand of bottled water is better than another; can't drink this one because it tastes funny; I don't eat anything from a jar, only fresh for me…
I needed a drink of water the other day and pulled it from the tap at work. Boy did I get harassed by the folks there! "How can you drink that, it tastes horrible." And how would you know if you only drink bottled water then? All I have at home is well water, it tastes like water to me. I'm not paying $1.00 for a sip of water from a vending machine.
I also get ridiculed, well not really but it does get mentioned, that I eat the same thing every day for lunch. I also eat it for dinner I tell them, boy that sets them off. I make a big batch of something over the weekend and dish it out for the following week. I hear from them that most people cannot eat leftovers because they are old and stale tasting. Sorry, but I cannot afford to spend $10 or $15 each meal when I can spend around $20 for enough of something to sustain me for a week.
Imagine these folks when something happens and there are only a few jars of PB in the cupboard? I can eat most anything, and have at one time or another. I'm not a huge fan of PB but boy could I get to love it!
