The issue isn't that things all go up - it is how drastically things go up over a specified period of time. It wasn't THAT long ago that I recall buying bagels on Sunday mornings at a quarter a piece. More importantly, though, is the price hike of $8/doz to $12/doz in the course of just a couple of months. I know of few items that have had a 33% bump in price in the same time period.
It is possible, though, that Ess-a-Bagel has raised their price over the last few months and I just haven't seen it because I haven't been there.

To order 2 dozen bagels from H&H from where I am on the West coast (or anywhere else in the country for that matter) it's $69.95 which works out to just about $2.95 per bagel. It's a rare luxury I've had only once in the past 10 years since times have been tough. H&H are the best I've ever tasted though, and the case could be made that they are well worth it.
So, we'll have to look into checking out ESS-A-BAGEL one of these days. Could there really be a better bagel than H&H?
Two things...(1) I have yet to meet the bagel that is worth $3/ea to me. Honestly, I didn't think they were worth $1.15 the last time I went. They were good...but (2) Ess-a-Bagel are, IMVHO, far
I don't know if this gives the proper perspective, but that is a standard bread knife - and it is not as tall as 6 cinnamon raisin bagels from Ess-a-Bagel.
