Bacon and Fozziemum invited all to a new edition of shop around the world… shopping is my mom’s middle name so we are in, of course…
First, Brother, they refused to re-pack the stuff in the sizes you predefined. That’s SCAM-PAW-LOUSE! Butt anyway, let’s see what we have in our shopping cart:
Price of cable services for one month – what do you get for that price?
we have none, because the cables aren’t long enough to reach the boondocks, so we have to use SAT-TV.
A longer while ago we had a tv pirate provider who offered  nearly all things what went ever through the airwaves. From shopping channels of Absurdistan  to the News of  Franz Joseph Land we received everything. Sadly the pirate provider guy disappeared and the light went down at all his clients … hope you made it to Libertailia and if not I hope you have cable tv in your cell, buddy. Butt just between us, to place your  special offer in receiver boxes of an electronic chain was not really clever… butt you had  balls. Respect!
 That’s the offer I found at the site of our internet provider, butt I have no clue what you really will get for your 37.99 = $$51.64
A 12 ounce box (360 grams) of Cornflakes
we only have other sizes of packages, but corn flakes you can buy everywhere to a moderate price. They always look boring and the boxes haven’t a special design or special flavours  on Howl-o-Ween or Christmas. Therefore THANKS AGAIN BACON for the yummy  cornflakes you sent to my staff!
220 gram (7.07 oz) = 1.59 euros – $$2.16
A 15 ounce package (432 grams) of Oreos or other cream filled cookies.
things what are not “made in grande nation” are expensive here. if you want to march to a different drummer, you have to pay a higher price. Some discounters offer “faked” Oreo’s what are simply inedible, so we buy it only rarely. Otherwise my mom dislikes the kid of their commercials what’s completely talent-free and annoying.
Oreo’s 176 gram (5.66 oz) = 2.03 $$ 2.76
A 7 ounce bag (225 grams) of Lay’s potato chips.
we have no lay’s so I picked another brand:
Chips 200 gram (6.43 oz) = 1.09 euros $$ 1.48
1 pound of real butter.
Butter always has 250 grams here. You can buy it salted or without salt. Once my mom bought a piece of salted butter and made a cheesecake. Her cheesecakes are anyway biologigal weapons but this one was totally over the top. The competition they hade, eat a piece without puking, ended in a draw…
250 gram (0.55lbs) = 1.51 euros  $$ 2.05
A 6 ounce can of peanuts
Peanuts  you can buy it in many variations. Butt it’s better to pick better brands, sometimes the bargain-nuts look a little nuts…
175 gram (5.63oz) = 1.72 euros $$ 2.33
 Are you a gourmand gourmet? Than you can buy this one:
They are HEART HEALTHY, that means if you get a heart attack when you see the price you only need one of this nuts. Cool huh? You can’t get peanuts not always for peanuts… and you must be totally nuts if you pay 11.10 euros – $$15.09 for 340 gram  (10.93 oz) of nuts.

    One nut is enough syndrome. I learn something new every day…..

  2. DailyMusings says:

    peanuts for that price? CRAZY. They are the least expensive here- that is more like the price for Macadamia nuts.Our internet is $29.95 but they charge with phone $29.95 and TV $75.00 or it would cost even more.

  3. WOW…….interesting comparisons with HERE… Dad is a Planters-Nuts-o-Holic so we’d be in the poor house if we had to pay the price you do for those….!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

    • Butt on the other hand a can of that nuts would make a great birthday present :o) Or a christmas gift :o) “what will you have for christmas dinner?” …” mmmm well… a can of planters nuts….” bawhahhahaha

  4. fozziemum says:

  5. merbear74 says:

    Those are some mighty expensive nuts…. :o)

  6. crimsonowl63 says:

    Other than the outrageously priced nuts, the rest of the prices seem lower than here in Ohio, but I could be wrong. My husband does the shopping now most of the time. I am looking forward to seeing more prices from around the world.

  7. PigLove says:

    Did you hear that sound? That was this little piggy hitting the floor with a thud – $15 for a can of nuts?! OMP (oh my pig). That’s highway robbery! And to know that between me and daddy, we almost ate an entire can ourselves…. WOW. I ❤ these price comparisons brother. Thanks for participating!! XOXO – Bacon

    • Bacon that’s one the the bestest bloghops, it’s interesting to see the different prices for the same things!
      We should elect a shopping queen of king at the end of the year who has the priciest item ever :o) The nuts of Mr. Planter could have a chance, huh?

  10. Wow….we can’t believe the price of the Planters nuts! Even macadamia nuts aren’t that expensive!!!!

    The Florida Furkids

  11. That’s a pretty nutty price for those nuts!

  12. Kyla says:

    Nobody gets Lay’d in the grande nation?

  13. Two French Bulldogs says:

    Crazy how the prices vary so much. Mom yells at our Cox cable bill every month
    Lily & Edward

  14. Will and Eko says:

    Unless those nuts come with diamonds, not sure where they got the price.

  15. Mental Mama says:

    I hate grocery shopping. I keep hearing commercials for home delivery services, but I can’t even imagine how much more expensive that would be. Guess I’ll keep getting off my butt every weekend and going myself.

    • I’m also not a real fan of grocery shopping, specially before holidays it totally sucks. And during summer break, the noise level is the same like a starting jumbo-jet :o(

  16. oh my gosh – we had better send you some peanuts – that is a crazy price for them.

  17. Brian says:

    You would have to be a little nutty to pay that price Easy!

  18. Emmadog says:

    All good info, but what about the important stuff…the cost of good dog biscuits???

  19. rottwlrmom says:

    Easy, We have Trader Joe’s here…which is a German family owned chain that is pretty much nationwide now. I wouldn’t shop there for years because it said “gourmet” and I was certain I could not afford it. Imagine my shock when someone told me it was MUCH cheaper! Cheeses are often $4 a pound cheaper at Tjs! The private label a lot and you can get good nuts cheap and there Joe Os… taste like the real deal!!!

  20. Mostly those are pretty good prices! We didn’t know you were in the boondocks!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  23. Coccolino says:

    How interesting! Some of those items cost way more and some a lot less than here! I love the comparison.

  24. And we thought nuts were expensive in Missouri, USA! We like those cashews!

  25. OMG, sparerib flavored potato chips sound yummy!

  26. Darn it. I missed this shopping day.

    But here’s a funny for you…speaking of NUTS.

    The peeps went to see a movie the other night called Chef. This guy was driving a food truck all night and into the early hours of the morning in VERY HOT AND HUMID weather. He reached for a box of cornstarch and poured it down his pants. The other guy – a chef – did the same thing. To dry off their sweaty NUTS.

    When the chef’s young son asked what they were doing, the chef said, “Here, pour this cornstarch down your pants. It’ll help you cool off. Then, you can dip your nuts in oil, deep fry them and make HUSHPUPPIES!”

    If you don’t know what hushpuppies are, read this:

    Always good for a laugh, Stu

  27. Sage says:

    We do the satellite thingee too and it’s pricey at $96–but there’s lots of C..R..A..P you have to pay for in order to watch the few stations that are fit to watch. And we hate cable. So there you are for that one.

    I buy my peanuts from Trader Joe’s and have no idea what I pay for them–certainly not that much. 🙂

  28. Thanks for the shopping adventure. I was paying 100 for my cable then gave them the ax and now have it for 40

  29. Papoe says:

    We never see those brands in our country!

  30. $15.00 for pee-sized nuts?!? Are they nuts?!? Who would pay that? How much a big-nuts…or dough-nuts…more because they are not pee-sized? That is an outrage. But oh…I am thinking…but it is impolite to say so I shall just keep it locked in this terrier brain for now. BOL Have a great weekend, my pal.

  31. Oh I got nutty confused reading about nuts… anyway I had no idea that you can get a cocktail peanuts… I must look for them… you know for a special occasion…
    btw, do you know why they are different? or is it just the price which is “special”

  32. Sasha says:

    Mommy is totally crazy for those nuts, but she doesn’t have to pay quite so much for them. She might though if she had to, trust me it is a bad addiction of hers.

    Loveys Sasha

  33. 2browndawgs says:

    I guess I could eat all the Oreos I want because they are often on sale here, but alas, I don’t care for them. 🙂
