I wonder who in the world manufacturers think they are fooling when they market their products? Well, they sure don’t fool me—and I think I am a typical consumer.
What I’m talking about is the size and weight of products in the stores. Who do they think they are fooling when they make a quart mayonnaise jar look like a quart but it is actually 30 ounces. The last time I checked, a quart was 32 ounces. Have you noticed that the looks of the jar is the same, but the shape of the bottom has changed so as to hold less mayonnaise? But the price? It sure didn’t get smaller, or stay the same–it went UP, like everything else.
This is only an example of other things–and maybe of other things to come.
A candy bar is not the same size it used to be–if it is, it has been on the shelf for awhile and you sure wouldn’t want it. It seems to me that even Little Debbie Cakes have changed their size too. I’m sure I’m not imagining this, because you know that I’m the one who should know, since I am the connoisseur of those little delectable delights (well, me and Bro. Paul Hubbs).
Now, I haven’t checked the price of everything in the store–I don’t think I can stand the shock. But I have noticed a number of items have changed in size and the price has increased too. So, who do they think they are fooling? (Just a little food for thought).
