as i was standing in line at the duane reade pharmacy yesterday i noticed that candy was going for $1.40 which seemed ludicrously expensive and this article backs me up on that. they used an average price of $1.14 for candy today which would translate to $.78 in 1979 (around the time i was a candy buyer) when the price was 25 cents.

similarly in the same time frame oreos would cost 3 times more than they did at today's prices. they were about a dollar per 15oz in 1980 but would cost about $3 now if adjusted from the $4.50 they currently cost.

At first I was like, "Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?". But then I was like, "The Oreos are too damn high!"

(Yes, the internet is rotting my brain.)
