Over 30 years ago, take-out food wasn't as expensive as it is today.
On Twitter, a user named Andrew King posted a throwback to 1990 when Swiss Chalet advertised their "Festive Special" that sold for $5.75.
When other Twitter users saw the promotion, they were baffled by just how expensive food has become.
In the replies, someone posted the same combo but with a new price of $17.49.
King, however, responded with the Bank of Canada's inflation calculator and said the "same meal from 1990 now in 2023 should be $11.57... (and the quality now is worse."
Someone else chimed in and compared how long it would take, on a minimum wage salary, to be able to buy the meal.
Someone pointed out that a family of five would have to spend over $120 to eat.
In the quote tweets, someone said that the special is not the same since Swiss Chalet no longer offers Toblerone with it.
The deteriorating quality of the Swiss Chalet "Festive Special" also came up in the replies.
