Getting Less Costing More

It seems to me everything is getting less and costing more. Frozen diners are where I notice it most. The ones that used to be full to the brim of ingredients are now so watered down you almost have to use a spoon to eat them. My favorite cereal bar is now smaller and has more calories. That upset me so much, I took the before and after wrappers and wrote the company a nasty letter. I never sent it. Now I wish I had. I might have gotten a case of them from the company.

Probably the only company who increases their ingredients are the cigarette companies. I don’t know this for sure, I don’t smoke anymore, but it makes sense. Keep ‘em addicted. But that’s another subject.


  1. You are so right, we certainly pay more for less these days. I've noticed it with many of the products we use but, I haven't analyzed it as thoroughly as you have. The first thing that comes to mind,is that there are hardly any chips or cookies in a bag anymore. Seems deceptive to me.

  2. Isn't this the truth! Very deceptive. I've noticed the higher prices and smaller portions as well. Great blog by the way.
