    My Beloved Applegate Hot Dogs Went Up 60%!!

    Primal Fuel
    Next week is my 2nd Paleo Anniversary, and my Applegate 100% Grass-Fed Hot Dogs have been faithful friends the whole time!

    They were $4.99 when I started. Today I had to pay $7.99!!

    Have they misplaced, like, 150,000 cows?! WTF, Applegate!

    (Could this be drought related, or...??)
    Vegan from 1993 until Oct 16, 2010. "D'oh!!"

    I think it's Federal Reserve related.

    If your government is forcing you to be paid with paper, then they don't have your best interests in mind.

    Do not blame Applegate.

    If prices could be cheaper, then new competition would come in. And if new competition can't come in, it is because of government regulations which make it too costly to start a business or hire an employee.

    Must have been the worst drought in the past 100 years because meat prices are higher now than they have ever been.

    Remember, supply and demand works with money too. You have a certain supply of money, and a certain demand for money. When money is in infinite supply, guess what happens to the demand.

    I'm pretty sure it's actually one of the worst droughts in the last hundred years. Also, it's just goddamn hotdogs. Can we please have a conversation about hotdogs without some libertarian spew?

    Wilberfan, I suspect it is the crippling drought affecting most of the western US, in addition to the use of corn for biofuel production.

    I noticed it with bacon a bunch of years ago. I mean I know I'm reeeeally old, but bacon used to be the shit meat you could buy for cheap. A few years ago it got expensive - prob'ly in reaction to "pork fat rules!"

    Sorry about your hot dogs. Maybe you could learn to make your own? I grind small portions of meat in what may be the cheapest three-cup food processor on the planet, and I've seen some inexpensive sausage stuffers over at Amazon.

    Oh, and the other reason, is I think the cows got their own union.

    Try a different supermarket?

    I got those hot dogs for free a few days ago. My Publix had them at 6.99 with a "new low price of 4.99" sticker next to it. Rang up at 6.99. Me pointing that out = free hot dogs. yay!

    But seriously, for products like that, the supermarket prices can vary quite a bit. It all depends on whether the store manager thinks there's a market for it, and how "special" it is. My crap Winn-Dixie in my neighborhood prices Stonyfield yogurt at crazy high prices, then wonders why no one buys it. Except me, when it's on clearance for 1.50.
