Once the cheapest place to get candy bars without a special sale, chocolate has suffered one of the first price increases since Dollarama introduced $4 items. All of those $0.77 candy bars like Reese, Hersheys, KitKat, Cadbury bars and more are now priced at $0.82. To be fair, they have been $0.77 for ages, I remember getting some for a rebate when Target was still open in Canada, but it does indicate that we will see some other price increases on the everyday basics many of us buy at Dollarama.
Their off brand king size bars are still priced at 2 for $1, if you are not familiar with them:
- Duet – similar to Twix
- Meteor – similar to Mars Bar
- Titan – similar to Snickers
- Island Bar – similar to Bounty
- Crispy Rice which doesn’t have an exact brand name duplicate
They tend to only have 2-3 of them at a time and I don’t recall seeing Duet bars recently, but it may be a regional thing. Discussion of Dollarama finds and price increases can be found on our forums here.
