Easter Bunny Battered By Candy Inflation

Updated: Jun 1


Burt Flickinger's latest appearance on FOXWEATHER, FOXWEATHER.COM & FOX BUSINESS with Amy Freeze and Craig Herrera featured a discussion of record-high prices for Easter that is candy-crushing consumers, with Cadbury eggs up by two-thirds and wicker baskets by 12.5% this holiday season, and sugar, milk, coffee & eggs up 20-50%. Overall, the annual cost of gas, groceries & home energy for a family of five is now $9K and on its way to $10K, up from $5K a year ago. Wicked storm systems are expected this week going into Good Friday & Easter Sunday that may curtail at-home Easter Egg Hunts as consumers can't afford to eat out, and also impair farmers, retailers & truckers. Also, because of inflation, many consumers won't be able to afford new dresses, suits, clothes or shoes for their children's First Communions & Christenings, with the cost of clothing high and going higher & people can't afford to get married & have children.
