The Dying Dozen

Looks like food companies have taken liberties with traditional packaging and no longer honor the tradition of selling some foods in dozens, even though the price has stayed the same, or even increased.
Picked up some wieners today for the first time in over a year...10 in a pack..evil..I say..

The dogs I buy have never come in dozens. Right now I get 6 in a pack. At the same time, HD buns come in 8 packs. So you need 4 packs of hot dogs to match up in quantity with three packs of buns.

We never had 12 dogs to the pack.
Our dog and bun quantity are the same - 8 each. EXCEPT for Hebrew National which only have 6 or 7 to the pack.

I do remember a 10 pack of dogs and everyone complained because buns were only 8 in the bag. Now they are equal.

I think the package content depends a lot on the brand you buy.

I buy my hot dogs from Omaha Steaks. They are 3 ounce deli style franks and they come 4 to a vacuum sealed pack. I used to buy Oroweat hot dog buns in California, which are larger than a normal bun and come 6 to a pack. Arnolds does not sell an equivilent package of buns.

A lot of companies opted for making smaller packages, but keep the price unchanged. Rather than charging more. Practice proved to be successful. People, a lot of people do not complain.
