I really wish these prices were close to where I live. A lot of the fruits and veggies are similar, but the rest are way off. On a good day I pay $20 for 3-4lbs of chicken breasts, and $5/4L of milk. Eggs run anywhere from $3-6/dozen.
Most of the prices are pretty close for my area. Food prices vary by location season etc, I think the thing is to see the prices of the healthier items in relation to the not so healthy.
I used to think that eating healthy was more expensive but I've found it's not, it just takes a lot more time, effort and planning. And can be more difficult to do for just one or two people as cheaper bulk veggies and such may go to waste before used if not careful.
Where I live (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) food costs a LOT more than that. Take the prices listed in this article, and for most of them multiply by 1.5 or 2. A few of them are comparable, but not very many for sure.

I live in Hawaii. Just multiply all of these prices by 2. Food is very expensive out here.
I HATE the pop ups that are all of a sudden coming on the end of the articles! Can't we read an article in peace without having to dodge all the obiquitous ads?? Its bad enough that they are all over the margins of the pages!
