Our town is around 4,000. This new sub outfit opened up and is doing well! My wife always bought a certain sandwich at another fast food chain that has golden arches and she stopped buying there when they downsized their food too. Classic examples of more $ for less!
Last week I was looking for cheap diet coke and found 12 packs reasonably priced. It was coke but packaged in (special for Walmart?) generic red cans marked "Coke". I started to take one but noticed how light it felt. The cans are no longer 12 ounces but more like 8 or 10.
Diet Shasta Cola tastes just like Diet Coke at half the price but it's scarce lately.

Then you have this......... Attention Ice Cream Lovers: The evil entity wielding the grocery shrink ray has pointed its malevolent device at Ice Cream. The standard jug of ice cream is now 1.5 quarts, down from an already-shrunken 1.75. The price, naturally, is exactly the same.
Will the grocery shrink ray ever stop? Or will our generation tell our wide-eyed grandchildren stories of the halcyon days of half gallon ice cream containers? Will they even believe us?
