During a recent trip to England, I couldn't help but notice that supermarket food items were significantly cheaper than what I pay in Philadelphia... even after conversion to the U.S. dollar equivalent. I can't remember exact amounts, but one example is Greek-style yogurt (which we couldn't even get in this country until a couple years ago!) It was about half of what I pay here.
Does anyone know why? We're a larger country... is transportation an issue? Or are we just getting ripped off?
On a related note, the dairy products seem to be of a much higher quality in England (not to mention the chocolate!) Any insight would be much appreciated.
