Milky Way Inflation

I am no monster sweet tooth, but I do know today was the first time that I have ever bought a normal size candy bar (not one of the monster ones) and have had the cashier ask for more than $1 dollar. Price? $1.01. Inflation? Prices just about everywhere are rising. So does the Fed save real estate and stocks or curb inflation? And if they sputter around with no real plan, what next? Anyone else have the feeling the ride is just beginning?
