Picture Showing $70 Worth Of Groceries In USA's Most Expensive City Is Blowing People's Minds

One Reddit user has shared what $70 worth of groceries will get you in America's most expensive city.

Spoiler - it's not a lot.

Ah, food shopping, the one time of the week we can treat ourselves and still feel like an adult.

Maybe this week you'll have Coco Pops for breakfast, or a full fry up, the possibilities are endless.

So long as you can pay, which has actually been a pretty sobering reality for many as the cost of living crisis continues.

Still, it seems that the US is also no stranger to paying an arm and a leg for, well, some pretty sad-looking chicken legs.

As one Reddit user, IMovedYourCheese, shared their latest food haul with the caption "This is $70 worth of groceries in the most expensive city in the USA."

For anyone wondering, the most expensive city is San Fransisco.

You might not get five a day, but let's be honest, who does?

Another suggested: "I'm not sure why everything is pre-packaged and portioned out either. Buy all that fresh produce loose and it'll be even cheaper."

To be fair, that's usually the case in our local shop - even if it does make things a pain to pack.

Not everyone was surprised by the shopping though, with one user clearly underwhelmed by the post: "Yeah, I'm confused as to which direction this post was meant to go in. It doesn't seem like an excessive amount of groceries for $70, and $70 doesn't seem like an excessive cost for this amount of groceries. This just seems… like a normal amount of groceries for a normal cost…"

While Canadians were saying the value for money was actually pretty good: "LOL. I was about to type something similar. No joke. Here in Canada, this would come up to $120 easily. That salad bag alone would come up to $7cad."

Another said: "This looks like a lot of food? But I don’t know, I use CAD dollars so maybe the difference makes it seem like a bargain."

Either way, it's pretty safe to say we won't be moving to San Francisco anytime soon - or Canada, for that matter.
