Price of food increasing?

Yesterday I shopped at my local chain market and noticed that lemons were 89 cents EACH!!
I noticed that the limes were $79 cents EACH!!
Apples were $3 per pound!
This market certainly no Whole Foods nor Wegmans chain (considered upscale), but a regular chain supermarket.

A few weeks ago I tried to buy lemons at Costco and I watched a woman who was purchasing lemons for her restaurant go through every box that was on the pallet and there were no sacks of lemons that did not have mold on some of the lemons.

However a few days later I was able to buy some at another Costco store (Chilean).

At another local store (a chain) I bought limes 8 for $1 - quite a difference between 1 for 79 cents and 12 cents.

Other than peanuts, which will be increasing quite a bit, what else have you noticed that are totally priced out of sight?
