Manufacturers have been lessening the amount on their packaging to appear that they are holding the line on inflation their products , NOT SO ! what they are doing is charging more for less product , for example :Ice cream from 1 gallon to 11/2 qt, coffee from 12 oz. to 10oz , pasta from 1 lb to 12 oz ,and paper towels from 80 sheets to 55 sheets .
The list goes on and on. whats frustrating to cooks is that you have to actually buy more and can’t simply follow a recipe that for example calls for 4 cups when the can of stock is now 12 oz..get the picture , either the consumers can form some sort of a boycott which is impracticable or write your legislators and have them enact good consumer laws /.end
