Hundreds of grocery prices have soared by more than 20% in two years, according to an investigation by consumer group Which?.
The consumer champion analysed the prices of more than 21,000 groceries across two years.
Which? compared their average prices at eight major supermarkets between the start of December 2021 and the end of February 2022 with the same period two years previously.
The consumer champion found that the price of 265 groceries shot up by more than a fifth over the last two years.
This list of items included Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Corn Flakes Cereal 500g which increased by 21.4% in price at Tesco.
Asda’s Own Label Closed Cup Mushrooms 250g was 21.4% more expensive, and Cathedral City Extra Mature Cheddar 350g rose by 21.1% at Ocado.
Across the 20 categories of groceries Which? looked at, fizzy drinks had the biggest average price rises, at 5.9%. This was followed by butters and spreads (4.9%), energy drinks (4.8%) and milk (4.6%).
