Cauliflower For Only $1.98 Each at Food Basics *HOT*


You read that right, buying cauliflower for only $1.98 each from Food Basics Canada is a hot deal! After all of the controversy about the cost of cauliflower a few weeks ago as reported be the Toronto Star, the price has finally dropped from around $7 a head to $1.98. The somewhat bland, low-key vegetable has become an unexpected symbol of our falling Loonie as there was a sharp rise of food prices across Canada. Grocers, however, have responded to the outcry and the modest cauliflower is now selling at Food Basics Stores on sale for $1.98.

    I saw the news item about the 1.98 cauliflower Thursday morning on CBC, so I looked up the smartcanucks food basics flyer, and there it was at 1.98. In the evening the paper flyer arrived and it was 2.98 so I called the local FB store manager. He claimed that he had an email from the company saying that Smartcanucks had
    made a mistake and he was standing by the 2.98 price.

    Did FB screw up? if not, what really happened?

    Different flyer for different zones.

    In Georgetown, it’s also 2.88 but whereas the posted ad shows bread, we’ve got pork loin halves for $1.49 (in the same location on the page where the bread is).
