Doritos bags cut by another half ounce....

I saw at the grocery store this week the 11 ounce bags are now 10.5 ounces.

And the Lays potato chips get more even more funky changes...

The party size bag in 2015 is now 15.75 ounces, BUTTT for sale in 2009 was a Family sized bag that was 16 ounces. And got cut a few times over the past few years.. Now in 2015 the so called Family sized bag is 10.5 ounces.... A bag that is not original flavor is 10 ounces...

Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky, with no price change for what was the 10 and 9.5 ounce bags.

The so called 10 ounce bag is now down to 8 ounces. The 9.5 ounce bag has dropped to 7 & 3/4 ounces though...


Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!

This way they don't have to raise the price. They just give you less.

Sure the price is the same, but if you are throwing a party, then you now need to buy more bags. Just another way to get your money in their pockets.

With all these companies cutting the amount of food in a package you would think that I would lose weight!
