Ocean Spray - how trifling can you get?

This is a new one.

Lots of companies are reducing the size of cans, boxes etc.

This year Ocean Spray came out with the 14 oz can.

However, they also raised prices. Just raise the price 10 cents over what you are charging for that 14 oz can. Do an either or ... raise prices or reduce can but NOT BOTH !!!

I'm sure Thanksgiving week that stores will be running special prices for cranberry sauce, but still there's less.

First they add HFCS a few years ago. Now this. What next ... fake cranberries?

This smacks of the holidays ... but not Santy Claus ... but of Mr. Potter and Scrooge and the Grinch that stole Thanksgiving. Sneak in and lop 2 oz off of everyone's Thanksgiving.

At least it is not as bad as the shrinking pumpkin pie can which can ruin a recipe based on the old size. From last year.

The pumpkin can ... it's shrinking, shrinking, shrinking

Then again ... I didn't look at the bags of fresh cranberries. I'm not sure if they are still 16 oz.
