Price-checking five retailers for Thanksgiving dinner in the United States 2020

In 2020, a whole cartload of Thanksgiving goodies from Aldi would cost consumers in the United States roughly 40 U.S. dollar cents per ounce, making this retail chain the cheapest option for making Thanksgiving dinner. In contrast, the cost of an entire basket in Whole Foods would cost Americans nearly one U.S. dollar per ounce. Some of the chosen food products included a whole turkey, sweet potatoes, and cranberry sauce.

Supplementary notes

The source specifies that for each retailer, the most commonly available low-cost options for the seven chosen foods were taken. On this basis, the price per ounce of the whole basket was calculated.

The source also adds the following information: "the cost per ounce of the entire basket of goods was determined by adding the mode, per-ounce price of all 7 items (due to wide variance, we used the mean average for whole turkeys)."
