For Missionary Monday over at the Baptist Missionary Women Blog,
we are comparing grocery prices and our grocery stores.
Here are some of the prices in Darwin, Northern Territory.
Prices are a bit higher than in other parts of Australia.
McDonalds, or Maccas, as they call it.
I prefer Woolworths, mainly because things are almost always in stock,
but Coles is cleaner and brighter.
Soda is crazy expensive. About $3 for a 2 liter.
This is for one sleeve of oreo cookies,
sometimes they go on sale a bit cheaper for $1.
Ice cream - I think Turkey Hill sold these for 2/$6.
Milk is ok priced. $3 for 3 liters.
Processed food isn't very big here, the freezer section is barely one aisle.
What they do have though is expensive!
Sugary cereals...how I miss you!
Candy bars, also expenisve.
Occaisionally Snickers and KitKat will go on sale for $1.
Some other prices that I didn't get photos of...
Bananas - $3.98/kilo = approx. $2/lb
Beef - $7/kilo = aprrox. $3.50/lb
Chicken breasts - $10.90/kilo = $5.50/lb
Eggs - $4-5 dozen
Lunch meat - ham - $15-18/kilo = approx $7-$9/lb
