Products Getting Smaller For The Same Price

Speaking of dairy country, the shop I was at today didn't have the local brand of (real without any preservatives or stabilizers) cream so I thought I could live with Sealtest one time. Too bad they come in 473ml size. Liters motherfucker. Do you speak it.

Balderson Cheddar Cheese blocks 300g down to 280g

This is a new trend that vendors are trying - blending to reduce cost/price. In effect 'watering down' the product:

Grocery chains' fresh ground beef now also available as ground beef+pork (not clear what the percentages are)

Allen's Apple Juice - now available in a blended, "From Concentrate and Not From Concentrate" variety.

bottles of coke in convenience stores have gone from 591ml to 500ml rather unexpectedly recently

pepsi products remain 591ml.

How much does a regular chocolate bar (like Oh Henry) run for at your average convenience store now? Last time I was in Canada I paid $2.

I can get a Snickers here for 50 cents.

Snickers has never been $2 unless you're at the movies or something.

77 cents + tax at Dollarama, about a buck elsewhere.

In a bit of good news, people will notice that potato chips and cereal boxes are on the upswing lately, size-wise, due to vinegar and sugar prices being more competitive because of our weaker dollar.

Oasis Orange Juice, 2.63L down to 2.5L, 1.75L down to 1.65L
other orange juice vendors will likely follow suit.

So has anyone else run into the small pints at pubs? I think it's 14 oz or something but noticeably smaller than your "standard pint"? You will see this at the brazenhead.
