Your Thanksgiving dinner will cost less this year

Thanksgiving dinner will cost less this year than it has in the last decade.

The American Farm Bureau priced the classic items that may end up on your dinner table and this year it remains affordable at about $47 dollars for a group of ten.

That is less than $5 dollars per person. It is down $2 dollars from last year, and is the lowest cost since 2010. The main factor driving this trend is the turkey, which fell 7 percent from last year.

Chicken is America’s favorite protein during the pandemic.

Roughly 75 percent of Americans who eat the protein say that they make it at home at least once a week.

We should mention, the survey was conducted by the National Chicken Council. They claim it is the most popular because of its versatility and ease of use, and roughly 50 percent of Americans say that they will have chicken as their holiday meal, opposed to ham or turkey.

Retail chick sales have increased more than a billion dollars this year. That is up nearly 20 percent from a year ago.
