Thanks Janet Yellen: Price of Thanksgiving Dinner Surpasses $50 for First Time
The price of a Thanksgiving meal for 10 people has nudged up slightly to $50.11—the first time the holiday meal has edged over the $50 mark, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.
This year’s price is a 70-cent increase from last year’s average of $49.41.
Foods showing the largest increases this year in addition to turkey were pumpkin pie mix, a dozen brown-n-serve rolls, cubed bread stuffing and pie shells. A 30-ounce can of pumpkin pie mix was $3.20; a 14-ounce package of cubed bread stuffing, $2.61; and two nine-inch pie shells, $2.47.
