PRICE CHECK: Ever wonder if the prices at your regular grocery store are cheaper or more expensive than those up the street? Each Wednesday, Price Check offers price comparisons on goods at area stores. Prices below were checked Monday. No coupons or discount cards were used.

This week: breakfast foods.

Stores visited: Bi-Lo, 2803 Wrightsboro Road, Daniel Village; Food Lion, 3246 Wrightsboro Road; Kroger, 501 15th St.; Publix, 2816 Washington Road; and Winn-Dixie, 207 Robert C. Daniel Parkway.

Note:

Price labels of some goods indicated cost for purchase of multiple items (i.e., two for $4). Store employees said cost would be the same ($2) if only one item were purchased.
