Most expensive Thanksgiving ever? Supply chain delays affecting food prices

Brace yourself for what could possibly be the most expensive Thanksgiving ever.

According to The New York Times, nearly every part of a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner — from the turkey to the pie — will cost more this year, thanks to the ongoing supply chain crisis and other factors including inflation, bad weather and labor shortages.

Turkey prices are expected to hit a record high, with the price per pound expected to surpass the current record benchmark of $1.36 by the end of the year. Other foods seeing an increase in price include packaged dinner rolls, canned cranberry sauce and coffee.

In contrast, The New York Times reports that according to the American Farm Bureau, last year the cost of a Thanksgiving dinner for ten was the lowest it had been since 2010.
