No, It’s Not Your Imagination: Thanksgiving Dinner Costs Way More Under Biden

Despite the political climate, Americans have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

Despite the political climate, Americans have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

But if your holiday dinner took a bigger bite out of your wallet this year, thank President Joe Biden for that.

While the Biden administration is offering talking points to liberals to use to debate their “uncle” who wants to complain about the state of the nation, the Post Millennial did a breakdown of the cost of Thanksgiving dinner.

And to no one’s surprise, with inflation running at roughly 8 percent over the past year, everything costs more.

“With the exception of cranberries,” the Post Millennial noted Wednesday, “every ingredient that goes into your traditional Thanksgiving meal has increased significantly, with some prices almost 70 percent higher than last year.”

The website cited data collected by the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The Post Millennial offered examples with individual dishes:

  • A 16-pound turkey that last year cost under $24 now goes for about $29, a spike of roughly 21 percent
  • Pumpkin pie ingredients up between 18 percent and 26 percent from a year ago
  • A 14-ounce bag of cubed stuffing mix has rocketed up by 69 percent since last year
  • Frozen peas, up 23 percent
  • Sweet potatoes are 11 percent higher than in 2021
  • A dozen dinner rolls will cost buyers 22 percent more than last year.

Post Millennial did not mention it, but the cost of raw potatoes has jumped about 10 percent since Thanksgiving 2021.

“General inflation slashing the purchasing power of consumers is a significant factor contributing to the increase in average cost of this year’s Thanksgiving dinner,” AFBF Chief Economist Roger Cryan said in a statement.

Inflation is so bad that not even left-wing MSNBC could ignore its effect on Thanksgiving, the Post Millennial noted.

The website featured a tweet of a guest on the left’s favorite network noting that in 2021 it cost around $68 to feed a family of 10. In 2022, Thanksgiving dinner for that same family will cost about $81.

“With families across the country struggling to make ends meet, all of these added expenses are unfortunately giving Americans fewer reasons to be thankful this year,” the Post Millennial noted.
