Trader Joe's has raised the price of its "two buck chuck" to $2.49. :(

Long know as the cheapest booze you can buy which still tasted passably good TJ's two buck chuck was a staple for starving college students, single parents, welfare queens, and homeless people as well as cheap bastards who were having dinner parties with people they really didn't like all that much. ;)

No price increase over 11 years is very impressive.

Good wine for cooking with and for those friends that have taste and aren't impressed by how much wine costs.

We tried 3 different ones, all very drinkable.

The quality was unparalleled for the price point. Heck, at $2.49 it is still a bargain but it can no longer really be called two buck chuck.

Maybe different producer, but also very drinkable:

We have to pay 1.70 duty per bottle which is more than the total bottle of 2 buck chuck ($2.72).

And you have to pay VAT on that, so even if the wine costs nothing the tax would be 2.04 -> $3.26

Well, that's just unreasonable. Oh, and I'm drinking two buck chuck (well, $2.49 chuck really) right now because I am a cheap bastard.
