I've heard some talk show hosts spouting off that eating healthy doesn't cost any more than eating a bunch of junk. With these produce prices I think they are a bunch of liars!
Almost $7 for 3 apples, really?
Guacamole anyone? It will only cost you about 6 bucks.
Or, how about some tangerines? Being from Florida where you used to be able to get citrus cheap, this one really hurts.
I remember when you could get kiwis 4/$1. Now they are $5.17!
The thing that gets me on these is that they are grown in Japan! Even if it's from the mainland, shipping can't be that much!
Before moving here I had heard that you can always get a good mango, but for over $5/pound I can't bring myself to do it. Plus, I'm pretty sure the papaya is grown on-island!
And I'm not sure what makes cantaloupe so expensive, but that one on the right is costing you over $17! You could get 6 bags of chips for that price! I'm not advocating eating junk, but it's no wonder why so many Americans are fat.
