Is amazing how much a little thing can get marked up.
I saw a 50g pack of chips in a vending machine at Whitfords Station today, priced at $2.00.
Put another way, priced at $40.00 a kg. For fried potato.
“Wargh!” I thought, “you could buy good-quality chocolate for less than that!”
I thought, it seems, correctly. While I was grabbing some veggies in Woolworths in the city, I checked, & the typical prices (in 100g lots) were about $30.00-$35.00/kg.
There were a few fancier items up around the $50.00/kg range, but they were rare & isolated.
Hmmm. Seems that buying expensive chips isn’t limited to casinos.
Idly wondered how much software was per kg, since a 20g Ubuntu CD doesn’t cost too much, & does come with free office suites, graphics design suites, 3D editors, games, programming languages, etc.
