Pringles unveils tray of eight Thanksgiving-themed crisps

Pringles unveils tray of eight Thanksgiving-themed crisps

Per the report, 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.

The dynamic all-in-one dish presented in a TV dinner tray features the following festive chip flavors: Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potato, Green Bean Casserole, Mac & Cheese, Creamed Corn, Cranberry Sauce and Pumpkin Pie.

New Yorkers will be paying less - on average - for their Thanksgiving dinners this year.

Here's a little something to be thankful about this Thanksgiving: the price of a classic American Thanksgiving dinner is actually cheaper than it was past year. AFBF's survey menu hasn't changed since its first survey in 1986 to allow for consistent price comparisons.

Items that showed a slight increase in prices include: a half-pint of whipping cream at $2.08, a 14-ounce can of pumpkin pie mix at $3.21, a 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries at $2.43, and a 1-pound veggie tray at $0.74.

Declines in the average retail price for turkey, rolls and milk are the main drivers behind the decrease in the cost of the meal, said Dr. John Newton, director of market intelligence for AFBF. The increase may be attributed to higher production costs.

Families have a little more to be thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday as the average price for dinner will be the lowest it has been since 2013. The American Farm Bureau Federation has put out their annual survey of classic items found at a Thanksgiving feast.

Another option for busy families without a lot of time to cook is ready-to-eat Thanksgiving meals for up to 10 people, with all the trimmings, which are available at many supermarkets and take-out restaurants for around $50 to $75. Over the years, our economy has changed, but the American farm and ranch has remained a vital thread in the fabric of our lives.
