And to make sure that those prices are effective instead of driving everyone away, they hype up their drinks and throw in sugars and syrups and other stuff to make it super sweet, and your body inadvertently becomes addicted in a way. I've literally had a barista try to tell me the coffee beans for one brew came from the Andes or some shit like that. They know full well their coffee is shit, but they aren't afraid to make you think it's better than any other coffee.

Starbucks barista here, the Starbucks in travel locations have higher prices etc. because of traffic to that place. I work in a resort town and so we have resort prices. Most of our drinks can be as bitter or as sweet as you want them to be, we really don't care I just want to close early so if it's not complicated I'm very happy. What you're referring to by Peruvian coffee is our reserve system; it's just coffee that gets taken from different geographic locations and brewed on a really fancy machine, our other coffee is just brewed normally and isn't from far our destinations. I really don't care either way, but people bashing on us baristas and pretending that we care enough to lie in order to sell our products is almost as annoying as the teenage girls that come in with a complicated order that tastes exactly the same as the normal version of the drink.
TL;DR We don't care enough to lie to people.

It is still supply and demand...you see supply refers to a (kinda relatively linear) line that describes how much a seller would be willing to make of a product at a given price. That price happens to partially depend on production factors. Demand is how much buyers would be willing to buy at a given price. Once again, this price already includes production costs (though the buyer doesn't much care what the costs are from the way the seller does). Supply and demand isn't literally there is this much there and people want this much. It is more like there will be this much if we set this price, and people will want this much. The goal of the market is to find the point where those two points are equal for both the buyer and the seller.
Yay business 101. Or microeconomics.

Yea, that was misswording on my part. Still, it is super cheap to produce these foods (and their expiration is generally a lot longer), and harder to grow vegetables that stay fresh for a decent duration (Though it is easier with GMO's). I just wanted to point out that "people not wanting to buy them" is the key. That and some vegatables are seasonal and aren't necessarily produced year round (I know salads are an exception, that is pretty much year round). Lastly people like the fat tasted in processed food, it's cheaper and tastes better, and they get addicted. I think that with the supply and demand foundation is what keeps the price difference between them. I hope I explained that well enough, I'm pretty tired.
