WTF. I’m pretty sure I got hosed. Granted this turkey is huge and was walking around a couple of hours before I bought it so it’s fresh never frozen. Last year it was $58. I’ve never even heard of a turkey this expensive.

I bought a frozen Turkey 3 weeks ago, b/c my Wife said she heard there may be shortage.

Honeysuckle frozen bird at Kroger. On sale for $1.59 per pound.

a week later they had Kroger brand frozen birds for $.49 per lb. The Honeysuckle was on sale for $.99 per lb.

We were at Meijer in Milford, OH. over the weekend. No shortage of frozen birds from $.79 to $1.89 per lb.

WTF????

There is no shortage of Turkeys in Cincinnati, and they are cheap

My local favorite grocer has butterballs or honeysuckles, I can't recall which, for 98 cents a pound.

I'll eat turkey, but I'm not especially fond of it. My ideal Thanksgiving meal is Brisket, Ribs and Tamales, and that's true pretty much year around.

Butterball. .87/lb



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

That’s the farm price where they kill and pluck 10 minutes before you get it.


My Butterball was $.99 a lb.

Waterloo Ill., it's been about 35 years since I was last there. No turkey for me this year, I am not a turkey fan - once every 5 years is enough turkey for me. This year it is Texas style thanksgiving complete with brisket and mashed potatoes. So my turkey cost is zero.

Yes. For sure fresh turkeys have always been more than a butterball but not this much more. Holy smokes.

I bought a pasture raised turkey this year from a local farmer. I paid just a tad less than you did per pound. To me it's worth the price. You get a turkey that was raised and fed and executed properly. No solution injected so you can brine it or not as you please. Also you support the local farmer. I bought four pasture raised chickens from him as well. We roasted one a few weeks back and it was delicious.

Too much of our food supply chain is now owned by China. I have gone almost exclusively to purchasing meat from online independent retailers who raise and process their animals in the U.S. or local farmers. Yes I pay considerably more but I've never been one to go cheap on the food I eat.

I don’t know and I’m not going to ask. My wife bought a pre-cooked turkey from Publix and I’m sure it was more than I think it is worth. It still has to be heated for two hours, but does eliminate a lot of messy prep work in the RV. I thought we were having a shrimp boil, but that’s tomorrow I’ve been informed.

Just paid $2.99/lb for 8.5 pounds of turkey breast only.

Only Mrs. Flash and me here, so we can't eat a whole bird before it goes bad.

That's pretty much what we're paying around here for a fresh turkey.
Everything has gone up a lot.

I have no recollection of what I paid last year.

Just paid $1.68/lb for a nearly 9 pound bone-in turkey breast. I didn't buy the turkey until Sunday evening and there were tons of turkeys.

All excellent reasons and exactly why I have always done it. Was just a little surprised at such a price hike. Sounds like it’s pretty much in line with others who buy fresh.

Mine was also fresh $2.29 per lb, so my 19+ turkey was almost $60. It’s not just the turkey though, it’s the ingredients to the side dishes that were expensive too. This administration and the entire left own the inflation we’re experiencing. They lack the basic understanding of economics and are too stupid to connect the dots.
