Are You Really Saving at the Commissary?

This article Putting The Commissary To The Test got me to thinking :

So lately I've been complaining alot about the rising cost at the commissary. It doesn't help that where stationed here in Hawaii and food is just expensive in general.

So while I am now paying close to $3.00 just to get a good loaf of bread it beats paying $5 or $6 at the local grocery stores outside post.

I know when we were stationed at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah GA, their were certain key items I brought weekly for my kids such as Poptarts and Fruitsnacks. I would absolutely get a kick out of how one week poptarts were a $1.50 a box and the next week they were $2.01 a box. The same thing would happen with the fruitsnacks. I mean geesh what happened in a week that cost for a 50 cent rise in price lol!

But for any CONUS ladies have you noticed your commissary prices getting higher?
