What Can A Dollar Buy?

So, I took break from the University today and headed down to the town of College Park to get a snack. After meandering around, I stopped into a couple of convenience stores. Since I only had a buck, I was looking to pick up some candy. To my chagrin, in both places I couldn’t get a thing. Hershey’s bars were a $1.06, including tax. So were peanut butter cups, and peppermint patties.

Well, even if it doesn’t buy you much here in College Park, I guess its some conciliation that a dollar can get far more in other countries.
