ALERT: Smaller package sizes = higher prices. Guilty parties listed herein . . .

I want to start a thread with a list of manufacturers that are surreptitiously reducing package size while keeping the price the same (or raising it).

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is an increase in price.

I'll start:

Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa Bittersweet Chips:

Old size: 11.5 oz
New size: 10 oz

You now get 10% less product for the same price. Of course, the packaging has stayed the same so most people don't notice.

Anyone else have any they've noticed?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
