How expensive is cheese in Canada, you ask? Well let’s consider
pizza, everybody’s favourite cheese delivery mechanism. There’s
a big nationwide chain here called Boston Pizza that sells,
among other things, pizza. A large pepperoni pizza at Boston
Pizza is $30.28.
At Pizza Hut in the US, they currently have a deal on where you
get a large pepperoni pizza for $7.99. That is less than $30.28 —
even after health insurance premiums.
Now, would I recommend paying $8 for a Pizza Hut pizza? No. Would
I recommend paying $30 for a Boston Pizza Pizza? Also no. Should
we be eating pizza in the first place? Well, yes, pizza is
delicious. As is cheese — but it’s slightly less delicious in
Canada, because it’s god damned expensive.
I had no idea cheese was so expensive in Canada. It tells you how popular pizza is that it still sells at prices like that.
