Herzliya Pituach - Post Report Question and Answers

How would you describe the availability and cost of groceries and household supplies relative to your home country?

This is a highly debated topic here but overall I have found that we really don't lack much and can order from Amazon/Sam's Club/Costo, etc., what we need. Items will cost two to three times more than what they cost in the States. - Sep 2021

Almost everything is available but usually pricier than in the U.S. Expats here with the U.S. Government get the 18% tax back on groceries and household supplies except fruits and vegetables. - Aug 2013

You can get almost anything you need here, but everything is very expensive. (US$5 for a jar of peanut butter, US$7 for American shampoo, US$5-7 for Aunt Jemima syrup, etc.) - Apr 2006
