Grocery Price Increases - What's the Biggest Hike You've Seen?

We're all noticing grocery prices creeping up (more like galloping up) because of various reasons but how many of these increases do you think are genuine as opposed to greed?

Yesterday I went to our local Post Office that's situated inside a Nisa store that used to be a Co-Op until last November when it changed to Nisa.  Apparently they are part of the Co-Op group but their stores are independently owned on a franchise basis.   I had a quick browse of the shelves while I was in there and saw the following:

A 9-pack of Co-Op branded toilet rolls was £4 two weeks ago, now £5.45 (Co-Op price was £4, now £4.50 so yes, they have gone up - but an extra 95p on top of that?)
A branded box of marrowfat peas costs £1.20 (60-65p elsewhere)
A bottle of Co-Op branded lemonade is 80p (Co-Op price 60p)

I think the owner of this store must be on a get-rich quick scheme, judging by their prices.   :o   Needless to say, I'll not be shopping there and will vote with my feet.

What price hikes have you seen lately?
Be kind to others and to yourself too.

    It was in Tesco Ireland in March.
    Pack of peppermint boiled sweets- went from 39 cents to euros 1.10 in one week! I checked to see if there was a pricing mistake: no.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!
