Bermuda Groceries are EXPEN$IVE

If you think inflation has driven prices up where you live, consider Bermuda — out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Almost everything is imported.

Price comparison — a 5oz package of Organic Girl baby arugula costs between $3.29 and $4.49 in the US; in Bermuda the same product costs $5.99 on special or $7.99 at the regular price.

BUT there must be some good deals. Right? Right?

I found the downtown MarketPlace to have the best selection. Prices are often better, too, than the other 7 MarketPlace stores on island.

Two litre Diet Pepsi $4.49 on sale. New York price $2.28.

Red Baron frozen pizza $8.59 on sale. New York price $4.47.

1kg mixed flash frozen vegetables $8.29. New York price $2.28.

La Vielle Ferme wine $12.99 on sale. New York price $8 and up.

Family size Raisin Bran Crunch cereal $9.19. New York price $5.38

Whole rotisserie chicken $13.49. New York price $8.

1.5 quart (1.42 litre) ice cream $8.49 on sale. New York price $4.97.

Just Bagels 6 pack frozen $6.59. New York price $4.18.

Raisin Bran Crunch must be healthy, I ASSuME. So worth the higher price. 😀

P.S. Unleaded gas price February 2023 was U.S. $2.27 / litre. Only Iceland and Hong Kong were more costly that month. Norway was $2.20.
