It's April Fool's day - and we're the fools!
Just those of us that buy or eat food. I've been meaning to post on THIS subject for a while now but kept forgetting, Jason reminded me. As I've said, been noticing this for some time now, especially in the last six months or so. Bags of chips only half full (the rest air), canned goods slowly shrinking on the grocery shelves and my favorite example crackers. All of my life saltine crackers have been exactly the same, crisp bleached starch salty SQUAREs. A few weeks ago I bought a box (store brand) that were rectangular. The packaging was exactly the same but to save money now a quarter inch on one of the sides was missing. You have to constantly watch them, they are sneaky!
