The Price of Food
I have not had to buy a packet of crisps for years. My children wanted one the other day. Normally when they want them it is as part of a grocery shop and so I do not notice the price. however, I could not believe that they were almost 50p a packet. When I was young they were 10p a packet and some were even cheaper. I was astonished at how the price had gone up and I assume that all food prices are the same. With recent reports that the price of cotton will be escalating, I guess we are soon going to have to forget being able to get cheap clothes as well.
