Let’s go, Brandon!
Thanksgiving 2021 is shaping up to be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday thanks to Joe Biden’s incompetence and corruption.
Biden’s supply chain crisis, reckless spending, endless government benefits and Covid vaccine mandates are all contributing to rising prices.
“So Thanksgiving is now less than a month away and it’s shaping up to be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday,” said MNSBC host Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday.
“The grocery store right now, I mean everything is up…this is different than even a few months ago,” Brzezinski said.
At least Joe Biden saved us 16 cents on our 4th of July cookouts!
The Seattle Times reported:
Nearly every component of the traditional American Thanksgiving dinner, from the disposable aluminum turkey roasting pan to the coffee and pie, will cost more this year, according to agricultural economists, farmers and grocery executives. Major food companies like Nestlé and Procter & Gamble have already warned consumers to brace for more price increases.
Weeks before the holiday feast, home cooks have started shopping, hoping to get ahead of shortages and price creep. “I picture a perfect storm of increased demand and lack of supply,” said Matt Lardie, a food writer in Durham, North Carolina, who has already laid out his Thanksgiving game plan and expects to have some components in the freezer by next week.
For many cooks, the biggest expense will be the turkey. By the end of the year, market analysts say, prices per pound will likely surpass the record Department of Agriculture benchmark price for turkeys — $1.36, set in 2015.
Turkey is more expensive largely because the price of corn, which most commercial turkeys feed on, more than doubled in some parts of the country from July 2020 to July 2021. Whole frozen birds between 8 and 16 pounds already cost 25 cents a pound more than they did a year ago, according to the weekly Department of Agriculture turkey report released Friday.
