If you want to counteract the socialist garbage your kids are exposed to in school, try telling them how Bidenflation is threatening to ruin Halloween trick-or-treating.
Fortune magazine reports that due to high inflation, prices of Halloween candy are higher than a full moon at midnight. In September, candy prices overall were up 13% from one year before. But the really good candy is out of sight. The price of Reese’s peanut butter cups is up by 35%, Skittles are 41% more expensive, and the cost of Twix bars is up by a whopping 53%.
Even with much higher candy prices, the National Retail Federation estimates that the average household will spend only $100.45 on Halloween this year, over $2 less than last year, thanks to the overall strain on their budgets.
So when your kids come home complaining that instead of treats like Snickers and Twix bars, they got the dirty trick of a sack full of cheap candy corn, tell them, “That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats.”
PS – Even if you make it through Halloween, you’ll still have to brace for this year’s inflated cost of Thanksgiving dinner. Last year, the ingredients for a typical Thanksgiving dinner for 10 cost a record $53.32 on average. This year, it’s estimated that the price will leap to $67.78.
The government claims supermarket food prices have risen 13% since last year, but that’s over a 27% increase in the cost of Thanksgiving dinner. While everything is more expensive, the biggest increase is in the cost of the turkey, an eye-popping 73% rise from $1.15 a pound to $1.99 a pound.
Well, let’s at least hope that the midterm elections will give us all something to be thankful for that might end this.
