5 lbs of flour in your area?
The last time I bought flour via retail I paid -
AP Flour - Gold Medal - 5 lb for 1.89
Bread Flour - Gold Medal - 5 lb for 2.54
Both purchased regular price at Wal-Mart SuperCenter.
I've got to find a new place to shop, the local home owned grocery i like went wayyyyyyy up on flour almost by 2.00.
This happened over the weekend. Boy did I get sticker shock .
Well, there is some good news on the horizon. According to the trades, wheat production is up about 15% so far this season, so hopefully, the price will at least stabilize, and not go up more.
The local cake supply store used to sell cake flour in bulk, 5 and 10 lb bags. The last time I went there, the owner said they went up so high on her, she couldn't afford to sell it anymore.
And to think my hubby farms wheat amd rice.
