(NEWSnet) — We all know about inflation hitting the grocery store, especially eggs. But now that those prices are down, they're soaring in another grocery aisle: the cereal aisle.

The Department of Agriculture says cereal prices are up 12.8%, putting many boxes priced well over $5.

Experts say it's the result of soaring grain and sugar prices in the past year due to the war in Ukraine, which is a major grain producer.

Some popular cereals rising in cost include Cocoa Puffs, Rice Krispies, Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, and more.

Experts advise checking your local paper or grocery store app for paper and digital coupons, checking for deals on bigger boxes, and trying the store brand cereal.
