$1 is approx. 25 Kc (Czech Crowns)
That gets you a lot of stuff. Here are some prices:
Bottled mineral water: 7 Kc
Small baguette: 1-2 Kc
Chocolate bar: 5-15 Kc (depending on the brand)
Bag of chips: 10 Kc
Beer (.5 liter glass): 15-25 Kc
Beer (bottle): 8-10 Kc
Soft drink (.5 liter): 10 Kc
and many more...

I think Spencer Althouse got it wrong, when it comes to what $ 1 can get you in the Philippines

The pix show Cheez Whiz 450 g

The Php SRP of that grams is Php 140.00 or if you converted it into dollar, roughly $ 2.97

McDonalds in Australia do not call them slushies - although they are identical to what a slushie is Smiley 

They look different, they are served in clear plastic large cups with domes, and are called "Frozen Coke" and there is like 3 flavours - you can get Frozen Spiders too which is the sundae whip on top

There is a price war amongst the fast food restaurants - and i think it is down to $1.00... its basically flavoured ice, like a slushie
