Aliyah tip #6- Eat more meat- it’s cheaper!
I have always suspected this while shopping here, which goes against everything I am accustomed to believe.
Rule 1: Meat, especially kosher meat, is very expensive.
Rule 2: Cheese and candy are cheap.
Israel, however, breaks all the rules.
For example, A package of Tnuva Emek light costs 100 shekel/kg, while Tnuva fresh chicken breast costs 29.99 shekels/kg. Tnuva feta cheese: 106 shekels/kg versus TevaOf premium chicken breast- 54.90 shekels/kg. The scariest comparison- Bamba costs 119.60 shekels/kg compared to Shufersal fresh boneless beef ribs at 79.99 shekels/kg.
The moral of this story? When shopping, throw away your chutz l’aretz rules.
