Whilst the below prices are approximations in an Australian context, I’d love to hear some options from other parts of the globe too! Consider that:
- Bananas are often $3/kg, whereas that slice of banana bread comes in at $12/kg.
- 150g of potatoes is 60c, where the same amount of potato crisps is $2.90
- 30g of rolled oats is only 15c, whereas the same quantity of a breakfast bar is 60c
- 100g fresh chicken is 40c, whilst 100g of BBQ chicken is 55c, or 100g premade kebabs is $1.40
