Buttery Math At Kroger: Double The Biscuits For 10 Cents More

Every day, as we go through our regular errands, we are being tested. A math test, that is. Reader Denis was amused when he noticed that a sale made canned biscuits the same price for five biscuits as for ten of them.


“The 5 count “Butter-Me-Nots” Biscuits were 89 cents, while the 10 count were on sale for…. 89 cents!” he points out. Not that the original price was that much better, offering twice as much faux-buttery deliciousness for only ten cents more.
