The Incredible shrinking package

swamp | Nov 2, 2009 11:39 AM

I would like to vent and see just how much this bothers other people. Recently I was shopping at my local Kroger when I notice they have now decreased the size of their frozen vegetable packages from 16 ounces to 12 ounces. I sent them a message and told them this is great for them, when they have their 10 for $10 events they make the same amount of money, but of course we get less. They responded and said they are just responding to consumer demands.

So I ask how many consumers out there have asked for smaller packaging for the same price?

It just seems to be a trend which exists only to sell more products. I mean how many recipes call for a 12 ounce bag of something, or 13 ounces of ground beef. They just know by doing this people will by two packages. It just does not seem right. If you give me less, charge me less. Is it just me?
