I have noticed over the last couple of years one trend that is bothersome. The size of food packages I buy at the store are shrinking, but the price has not. For example, ice cream used to come in half gallon containers, then suddenly they became 1.75 quarts and now they are down to 1.5 quarts, but the price has not moved lower. Other places I have noticed this is in cold cereals – the weight keeps shrinking and at some restaurants – the portions have decreased in size (e.g., Panera Bread). While this may be good for overall obesity trends, it is not great for my wallet. Anyone else noticed these trends?
