Do the food manufaturers really think we won’t notice that they took 2 ounces away, but are charging the same price? It’s everywhere…cereal, mayonnaise, rice, etc. I don’t know about you, but the way I am combating this…growing and making my own. Now, Mr. Big Business, how in the world does that help you? The more people that grow or make their own, the less you sell, the less money you make so you have to downsize your product again? Sounds like a vicious cycle to me. I’m not sure why you don’t just inform the public of your financial situation and charge us a few pennies more. At least then I wouldn’t feel like you’re trying to pull one over on me.
So go ahead… shrink your cans, put bubbles in your jars and make your boxes skinnier. I’ll just keep buying less and less of your product. It’s that simple. Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice. Well, that’s not going to happen.
Sincerely, A Fed Up Consumer
