2 weeks ago we did some food shopping at Walmart. I had coupons for some items. Went again yesterday to same Walmart. It looked like many things went up in price. Butter some brands were 3$ and up a pound. The Great Value Walmart brand even went up like 25 cents. The fiber bars I buy dh went up almost 30cents. They went from 2.50$ a box to 2.79$. For name brand. I had coupons. That would of took them down to the generic price. But not this time. All through the store. It seemed like many things went up. For buttering up toast or a sandwich or something. Shedds Spread type margarine in the tub is ok. Tastes ok. But for cooking it's no good. You can't fry eggs with it or use it for baking. Unless it says melted butter. I don't like the taste of margarine for much of my cooking needs. But don't mind Shedds Spread taste on toast or a sandwich. Butter is one item I will splurge on.
