Disturbing Financial News from Chipotle (and Beyond)
Written by Bwog Staff
Tipster and burrito-enthusiast Eugene Shapsyuk alerts Bwog to some unfortunate price-raising at Chipotle:
“I thought it’d be worth reporting as an FYI that Chipotle raised their prices. Price of a Burrito with guac is now $10.34 up from $9.25 I think. Guac’s 10 cent’s more and a Burrito is $7.61 up from I think $6.95. It might not seem like much, but it’ll add up for those of us that go there at least a few times a week.”
Sadly, we April Fools you not.
Spec Food Editor/Bwog tipster Shane Ferro posits that the rise in Chipotle prices could be related to activity in the international avocado market, where grain prices have soared due to a drought in Australia. Likewise, the price rise could also be explained by a shift on American farms from corn to soybean production. Foreshadows Ferro: “Expect to pay about twice as much for a bagel soon, as well.”
