SAINT ANTONY – Check out adds up. Food prices are rising course by course and eating away at the family budget.

“Everything from vegetables to meat and bread to cereal,” said shopper Sandy Castro. “And, the eggs, oh my god, the eggs. It is ridiculous.”

How fast are prices going up? To find out, we bought the same items we scheduled for curbside pickup last December at the same North Side supermarket.

It turns out that the same groceries that cost $224.11 six months ago now cost $15.46 more.

Inflation has its place at the kitchen table.

have children The milk money doesn’t go as far as it used to. The price of a gallon of milk is up 42% since December.

Breakfast costs are also increasing. Eggs are up 16%, bacon is up 10% and coffee is up another 9%.

One of the biggest price jumps was oatmeal. A 42-ounce container of Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats is a whopping 58% taller.

The lunch sandwich will cost you more. The loaf of bread on the list is up 23% and sliced ​​turkey for lunch is up 16%. The Hellman’s mayonnaise? It’s up 29%.

“You’re just trying to make the best of what’s out there,” Castro said. “Lots of chicken and lots of hamburger meat.”

But these prices have also increased. Chicken thighs were up 3% while ground beef was up almost 6%.

But the only product that fell significantly in price compared to six months ago was Prime Ribeye. It’s down more than 18%, which is rare these days.

For this dinner of meat and potatoes, the potatoes have really gone up in price. They cost 30% more.

“It’s not getting any better,” Castro said.

And it probably won’t be any time soon, many economists say. As long as post-pandemic demand, supply chain issues, skyrocketing gasoline prices and the war in Ukraine remain in play, prices are expected to rise.

Finally, a cold, hard shovel. The half-gallon of ice cream on the list cost 14% more.

This is the full list of foods that we have priced. The following prices were online for curbside pickup. (Prices are slightly lower in store.)
