Frugal food shopping for the Anglo Israeli

Chocolate for a bitter price

Hershey’s, Elite, Cadbury- everyone has their favorite. Lindt Excellence is world renowned for its excellent taste as well.

Since Lindt is manufactured in Switzerland, the US and England, being importers of this chocolate as well, should also pay a premium price. Despite that, Israelis pay 15.30 shekels a bar, while Americans pay 8.90 shekels and the English pay 10.60 shekels.

Why such a difference in price? The Israeli importer responds: “The price difference is primarily due to the costs to import it under refrigeration as well as the cost to market it locally.”
