I work in a supermarket (in dairy, for those who are curious), so I have been encountering all the stuff mentioned in this thread on an almost daily basis. Also, the place I work at has been having sporadic shipping on various products which means often don’t get a certain product for a long time, much to our customers’ consternation (Lactaid being the latest product affected by all this).

Hi Tack, I've noticed availability problems with Lactaid as you've mentioned. All my family are lactose intolerant, so it's an important staple at my home.

The thing that has me cynical in all this is that the usual result of issues such as these things ends up in higher prices permanently. Even after the supply, shipping, etc. returns to "normal" levels the prices don't. They'll come back down a little, but we might as well get used to higher prices.

The size of packaging is forever shrinking. At first they reduced the size of the product and packaging but charged the same. Now they're shrinking the packaging/product and RAISING prices! It's ridiculous. Before you know it a box of cheese-it's (or whatever) are going to be the size of those single serving cereal boxes. You would think with the reduction of product one gets for your money it would help reduce the obesity rate in the United States. Apparently not though.

At the grocery store on Tuesday, a 12 oz package of hot dogs was $1.00. The next day, Wednesday, it was $1.09.
On Thursday (today) it was $1.20.

Yeah, plenty of products that a short time ago came in 16oz packs are now 12oz - same price, of course. I buy Cheez-its and Ritz in the large, economy boxes and I swear, the packs inside contain fewer crackers.

My brand of jelly ain't on the shelf. I hope it's just temporary.

Nope. She said it's gone forever.

I hate that. Happens all the time.

Just 8 months ago, a dozen medium eggs at Dollar Tree were...a dollar. wink

Now that they have bumped the price up to $1.25, it's a half dozen medium eggs in a pack. frown

My favorite yogurt is gone. And the ones I'm trying out in replacement are..... well, not much of a replacement.

Yikes. It's also costing them to have someone walk around and change prices.

Short grain rice went up to $1.39, but long grain stayed at $.99/pound.

I'll be switching.

Frozen juice, in the last month or so, leaped from $1.99 to $2.49.



My old brand returned at $1.99. Whew.

Out of curiosity, what brand of yogurt would that be?

Revisiting this thread, I’ve noticed comments about certain products being gone “forever.” I have that last word in quotations because in my workplace, we’ve had products supposedly being discontinued, only to turn up again weeks, sometimes months later, which my supervisor and I find absolutely frustrating.

Oikos Triple Zero (greek yogurt, good luck finding peanut butter flavour) - from $1.09 to $1.39 (USD)
Package of bacon - from $4.59 to as high as $8.99 (though $7.99 is more typical)
Cereal (Corn, Rice Chex, Cherrios, Kellogg's Corn Flakes) - $3.59 to $5.09
Cream of Wheat: - $2.89 to $4.39 (that one was a shock)
Lindt 95% Cacao - $2.59 to $3.09
Spaghetti (Barilla, Ronzoni): $1.09 to $1.99

Lowfat chocolate milk wasn't available for some time.

Silver Lining

Happily, my favorite frozen pizza, DiGiorno Thin Hand Tossed Pizzeria (Margherita) is stable at $7.89
Vons Power Grain Waffles still $3.59

Wheat prices are going to skyrocket, I think I heard 30% of wheat supply comes from Ukraine. And well they are not harvesting wheat this year for obvious reasons.

Now gas prices??? frown

I remember on an episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Betty White joked that food prices had gone up so much it was cheaper to eat money! Ha ha ha!

Trader Joe's Plain, Non-fat, called "French Village" or something.

They've replaced with something with the same brand but not the same name. It's now kinda watery, in comparison.
