8. Kosher chicken cutlets
In Israel, the boneless and skinless chicken breasts that serve as the basis for fried schnitzel, the ultimate national comfort food, cost anywhere from NIS 34 to NIS 40 shekels per kilogram at the main supermarket chains, roughly the equivalent of $4.40 to $5.15 per pound. In the United States, you’ll pay about $6 per pound (much less, obviously, if keeping kosher isn’t an issue for you).
