I know I'm showing my age, but whatever happened to penny candy and nickel sodas?

I ordered checks for a new bank account and was shocked at how much one box now costs. Three or four times what I remember paying for even more checks “back in the day.” I got a bigger shock when they arrived with no checkbook cover and I discovered I had to order that separately. The last time I ordered checks (admittedly, a while back, since I do most of my banking online) I got a free one in each box of checks. Biggest shock was how much a flimsy plastic cover now costs! $15, including S&H. What products, especially cheaply made ones, have given you an unhappy surprise by their 2013 prices?
