    SLICED BREAD
    Have anyone notice that the slices of bread are thicker causing us to use more and costing us more without our eating more?

    if the slices are thicker, you're eating more.

    Don't know if the slices are any bigger, but I'm pretty sure the cost of a loaf of bread is higher.

    Food inflation is up.

    I read an article over the weekend that bread prices have recently gone up about 10%.

    And BACON is going to go through the roof.

    Don't know about thicker slices but my wheatberry bread has gone up in price by about 50 percent on two months.
