I was in the bakery section and saw this. $5.03. For what, you might wonder? What could possibly be so good and delicious and wrapped in that plastic wrap, adorned with that sticker? Caviar, maybe? No. Nova Scotia lox? Uh-uh. Try again. Well, it must be something really valuable to be in so small a package and cost so much, right? Wrong.
It was five slices of bread. For $5. One dollar per slice. I am not making this up. I actually had a little outburst and embarrassed my lovely wife when I saw this. Whole Foods – what the hell are you thinking?
What prices have you been outraged by at Whole Foods? If you have been there at all, I am sure you have seen something crazy like this.
