With food prices practically soaring across the country, Americans are doing their best to adjust to the sky-high price tags now adorning their usual groceries. In certain stores, however, grocery prices have always carried a certain level of sticker shock. Y'all thought Whole Foods was wild? Enter: Erewhon.
If you're new to all things Erewhon, all you need to know is the following: It's a luxury Los Angeles–based supermarket chain that's become quite buzzy for its celebrity-loved, über-expensive products — like $17 smoothies — and even people who have never been there can't stop gasping at just how pricey some of its items can be.
Lately, TikTok has been full of Erewhon walk-throughs where people take viewers on a virtual tour of the products in their local Erewhon store — and price-induced gasps are almost always on the menu. As a non-rich person who doesn't even live in California, I honestly can't look away.
