Despite fluctuations, cost of Thanksgiving dinner to be less than $50

Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner

That's roughly $1.40 per pound, a decrease of 2 cents per pound, or a total of 36 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2016.

According to American Farm Bureau Federation's 32nd annual price survey of classic Thanksgiving dinner, you don't have to wait until Black Friday to find a deal.

This donation which consists of 22 Turkeys, 30 cans of sweet potatoes, 26 cans of cranberry sauce, 20 boxes of instant potatoes, 26 packages of stuffing, 44 cans of green beans, 12 packages of rolls, 30 jars of apple sauce, 15 boxes of cake mix and 15 cans of frosting took place on Wednesday, November 15 at the food pantry in Princeton.

Nationally, an informal survey conducted by the American Farm Bureau Federation found the average cost of this year's meal for 10 to be $49.12, or $4.91 per person. But according to a new report, the average cost of turkey day isn't quite as high as you'd think, and it's actually the lowest it's been in five years. "This is the lowest price the survey has reflected since 2010".

The release cites a full recovery across the USA from the 2015 bird flu outbreak as the cause of this year's lower prices.

Lower retail turkey prices are a result from continued large inventory in cold storage, which is up nearly double digits since previous year.

In addition, milk prices have remained low throughout 2017.

How you feel about Thanksgiving directly correlates to how good at cooking your family is.

Shoppers with an eye for bargains in all areas of the country should be able to purchase individual menu items at prices comparable to the Farm Bureau survey averages.

Farm Bureau does not make any statistical claims about the survey data, but it is a useful gauge of price trends across NY and the country for shoppers who look to compare prices.

People really love Thanksgiving dinner. While Farm Bureau does not make any scientific claims about the data, it is an informal gauge of price trends around the nation.
