Food Price Comparisons Around the World

We may complain a lot about the price of food. The cost of many pantry staples seems to keep rising, especially now that gas prices are skyrocketing. But how does what we pay for food in the U.S. compare to other countries around the world? has a great little click through gallery that will let you look at 14 staple items -- from milk to soda to rice to bread -- and compare sample prices in the U.S. to various other countries around the world.

Suffice to say, if we lived in London I don't think we'd be making much spaghetti with meat sauce!

(Side note: if you haven't already, check out Olivia's World of Food series. She's cooking her way through the countries, A to Z. Last night was Belgium.)
