Hawaiian Grocery Prices

How Money Are You: Hawaiian Grocery Prices

Hawaii has a plethora of beautiful attractions, but the colossal cost of groceries puts an ugly dent on the island's nearly perfect image. Basic items have always been more expensive because the majority of goods are imported from the mainland, and now outrageous gas prices have inflated grocery costs even more. My trips to the grocery store don't seem so painful compared to what some Hawaiians are shelling out. How money are you?

Which price tag wouldn't be surprising for a jar of Jif peanut butter?

I live in Hawaii too, the prices are horrible but they're not THAT bad as long as you get the club card at whatever market you go to and buy the brands that are on sale. I will say however, there are way more drawbacks to living in Hawaii than the prices. Can't wait to get the heck out of here.

I'm glad I saw this. We leave for Hawaii tomorrow and we're staying in a condo and will have to hit the grocery store. I hear the farmers market is cheaper so I'll have to check that out for produce.

These prices seem really similar to what I pay in NYC.

I don't care how expensive it is, I can't wait to go back home to where I grew up! Of course, the husband's a doctor, so hopefully his income will help make up for the high prices.

prices in honolulu are slightly cheaper than that. the best thing to do is to get everything on sale. since hawaii is so small its easy to go to different markets to find things at the right price. I guess ive just gotten used to the ridiculous sad.

I live in Honolulu and I think that the prices on your survey are a little high. Prices here are high but not that ridiculous!

Wow. Hawaii has a lot of different temperatures and climates throught different parts of the islands. I know that space is a premium, but can't a lot of thinks be gorwn there? Surely there are some local farmers, dairies, bakeries, etc. that a person can buy from instead of paying such high prices for shipped in foods.
