Skittles for a DOLLAR!?!?!

    Skittles were my favorite candy when I was kid.

    Bought my first pack in years today at a gas station and they cost 99 cents, up from 49 cents when I was kid. I mean I get inflation, but this is outrageous!

    welcome to life, kid...
    When you realize that something like Gas is six times more expensive than when you started driving, then you can feel old.

    Never buy candy at the gas station. Their prices are obscene.

    I can get Skittles at work for $.75.

    Yeah, I guess I just figured Skittles would be frozen in time for me. So sad.

    Red ones are still the best, and there should be no debate about that.

    Check any CVS or Walgreens. 65 cents.

    And to go a little further, IJAG, never buy anything but gas at a gas station. Their markup is insane. They make a lot of their money from people buying the incidental stuff (pop, chips, candy, etc) and not so much profit on gas (station owners that is, not the big oil companies).

    Me too. Although I usually go for the Peanut Butter M&Ms. :D

    Hank, I've found sodas aren't much worse (usually) than I get anywhere else, and sometimes cheaper. If the bottled waters are on sale for $.99, that's better than the $1.25 I pay at work. Course, I usually just fill up bottles from my filter at home.

    Of all the things I've learned on this site, this thread has probably produced the most valuable and applicable info to my life.
