I don't know whether this is just the current state of Canada or whatever, but I just did the math.

I don't know whether this is just the current state of Canada or whatever, but I just did the math.
A can of Campbell's chunky soup on sale for $3.49 CAD (the regular price they used to be only mere months ago) along with half a bag of bread/buns for $3.49 CAD a bag (normally more but let's also assume you bought some 2 for $7 special or got your bread/buns on discount) means a Canadian is paying about $5.25 (Canadians have no pennies anymore, it's all rounded to the nearest nickel) just for a can of soup and the bread to go with it.

Meanwhile you could go to ANY sit down restaurant of almost any calibre and get a significantly better soup and accommodating bread/buns that was far more freshly prepared by other people for you for $6-8.

Why the frick am I buying canned soup when it costs basically just as much to go to a restaurant and have a soup proper, Campbell?

    I mean, hey, I like the taste of some of Campbell's soups but they don't compare to a real soup/stew from a sit down restaurant and if I'm basically paying the same price AND doing the labour of making the meal myself, why the frick not do I not just stop buying canned soups entirely and just eat out any time I want soup?
    I live central and walk everywhere, so the added expenses of "driving to the restaurants" doesn't concern me personally.

    it is, this country is fricked if you're somehow still living under a rock about that. I'd very much like to know where you're getting soup at a sit down restaurant for $6 though. A mcdouble and a coke cost more than that.

    Anyway just make your own soup, it's easy, cheap, and will feed you for days.

      Like to what extent
      Buying the chicken broth, noodles, carrots, celery, and seasoning by themselves is even more fricking expensive spoon-per-spoon.
      Or am I supposed to invest over $6,000,000 into farmland and start raising the crops and livestock myself?

            tell me you're moronic and bad at shopping...if you seriously, unironically think buying canned soup goes farther than homemade, you legitimately have single digit iq and you deserve to be fricked in the ass by Galen you cretin.

        And this isn't even the cheapest place in my area. 14 USD is great for an easy homecooked meal that can either feed 1 many times, or feed several. I also am investing in salt and pepper, and veggies to be used in other dishes (this is called meal-planning)

                those fricking prepackaged, process chicken strips are the most overpriced chicken product there is. anon, are you moronic? of course it's not affordable if you go out of your way to buy the most expensive shit. I know groceries are fricked in canada, but you can regularly get whole chickens on sale for $10 or less. just because the majority of us are morons who don't know how to spend responsibly, doesn't mean you have to follow. be smarter.

                Campbell's calling their canned soups, "luxury foods" is one thing but come the frick off it, Great Value is the "the most expensive shit"?

                it has nothing to do with the brand, it's that you're specifically buying prepackaged, processed stuff. that ALWAYS comes at a premium. you can buy whole chickens or wholesale chicken parts much, much cheaper. don't be obtuse.

              it's still fricked but doable if you are smart with your purchases and don't buy prepackaged brand shit. unfortunately canadian consumers are braindead zombies who wander in and buy whatever goyslop is shoved down their throat and so grocery chains just keep pumping the prices

        you really don't need that much space to grow food, in the space of a cars parking spot you can pump out a shit load of high yield crops then take that to the farmers market and trade for things you can't grow but others can.

    inflation doesn't move in unison, they jack up the price in aspect of the market so you shift your diet to more affordable things you wouldn't normally eat so you're not familiar with its price trends and don't realize you you're overpaying for that to.

      Canada has no housing but keeps mass immigrating second worlders to live here. Now we have no homes or food so people are rapidly inflating prices. That and despite 99% of the population living on the US/Canada border, Canada only really has two major city centers and ships everything by truck from those two centers to the entire rest of the country so fuel prices are fricked too.

        They just issued a 50% decrease on international students being allowed in Canada for college/university
        ...When it isn't the fricking international college students who are buying up and using up Canadian properties, it's mostly foreign investors from China buying Canada one plot at a time. The international students are more likely to pay $2000 a month for a hole in the wall and cram five friends into it, they're not the ones buying five homes and leaving them unoccupied.
