Russian groceries

with 1 Comment

How much do groceries cost in Russia? Here’s what I paid this morning (rubles -> USD) at a local supermarket.

One kg flour: 41 rubles = 64¢.
Two lemons: 20 rubles = 31¢.
Cream: 30 rubles = 47¢.
6 packets of Whiskas: 116 rubles = $1.80. (And now cat will start showing up hoping for extra food…)
Granola: 399 rubles = $6.20.
Raffaello: 410 rubles = $6.37.
1L sparkling water: 53 rubles = 82¢.
Two rolls toilet paper: 11 rubles = 17¢.
Gum: 37 rubles = 58¢.
Fancy yogurt: 61 rubles = 95¢.
More fancy yogurt: 47 rubles = 73¢.

This wasn’t quite a regular grocery trip. I just went to get cat food and, well, you know how it goes. If you’re interested in seeing a more standard grocery haul (veggies, fruit, pelmeni, grechka, etc), let me know and I can do that in the future.
