The Price Of Thanksgiving Dinner Is Going Up… But Not By Much


Prices go up everywhere, and food for Thanksgiving will be no different.  It looks like it will be up about 30 cents from last year.

That is according to the American Farm Bureau, which says “the average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is $49.48, a 28-cent price increase from last year’s average of $49.20.”

Okay, that’s a relief, I mean, .28 cents I can handle.

Our news partner, WZZM TV13 found that the big ticket item on the menu is the turkey. The American Farm Bureau says the price of a turkey is up 3% from a year ago. “A 16-pound turkey came in at $22.23 this year. That was roughly $1.39 per pound, an increase of about 4 cents per pound, or a total of 66 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2011.”

However, it seems that every grocer is competing for shoppers, so prices are still going to be pretty good this year.

The best news is the cost of some items will actually be down from last year. They include bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, milk, fresh cranberries pie shells, pumpkin pie mix and whipped cream.

How about apple pie?  I’m rooting for apple pie.
