Prices continuing to go up. For the poorer or even middle class, how affordable will groceries be in years to come? 5-10 years ago I don't remember even thinking about what food cost like now. We're just sensitized, like gas, to keep paying more and more. Uh.

Oh, my, you've misunderstood... again. Cleanliness of food growth, is my point. Clean food is a common expression when discussing organic, whole foods... the absence of preservatives & poisons in food... cleanly grown food. Perhaps you've not come across the expression before? Clean preparation is the responsibility of the cook & not at all what I was referencing.

You've twice referenced my age. I'm glad I come across as a whippersnapper, thanks!

Our own granddaughter, when she was very young had a terrible reaction to peanuts, and our son is allergic to many foods.
As per your rules & restrictions regarding this thread... we're not allowed to discuss allergies.

So, I think you totally took my posting out of content, I am simply giving another side of the picture. Isn't this what City Date is about. I don't understand why you took offense to someone disagreeing with you. None of us can be expected to agree with each other all the time.
You seem quite upset, which is strange. If you carefully re-read, I understood what you've said & am not offended at all. Your comprehension is askew, but perhaps a cleaner diet will benefit. You're making a lot of assumptions about me & I'm confused as to why you're taking out your aggression on me, rather than the other 8 in this thread who've said the same? Odd. I merely pointed out that people are unnecessarily criticizing those who express a food concern (such as you did), the question posed in the thread! Those who are doing so are being disagreeable & lacking in compassion. You're twisting words & misunderstanding pretty much everything, but you can sort if out on your own.

Have a great weekend... maybe switch to a couple cups of decaf.

The prolification of fru-fru yuppie/hipsterish foods that are trendy, organic and very much overpriced.

These fru-fru foods are starting to crowd-out and drive-up the prices of "normal foods. For example, Safeway used to be a really good, blue-collar type store. Now, wow, more and more fru-fru
cp which is effecting the price of their "normal" line of products.


NO, I DO NOT WANT TO BUY A ORGANIC POLENTA WRAP FOR 7 BUCKS! WTF is polenta anyways?

of course we all know, along with the increase in food prices salaries have increased as well, but your point is well taken. I can't believe how prices change from week to week, not to mention the downsizing in packaging. Not only are we paying more for food we are facing, trying to figure out just how much of what to use in recipes. An 8 oz can of tomato sauce is now 6 oz, tuna, 8 oz can, 4 oz and so on. Yes, the young families, just out of school are suffering as are seniors.

Kool-Aid is sugary junk food. I don't recommend anyone drink it.

Kool-aid only has 0.01 g of sugar in 1/9th of a packet. Certainly not a sugary junk food.
