    I really noticed that this past grocery shopping trip. The packaging looks the same but when you compare ounces that's when it becomes noticable.

    I did find Hell'sman Mayo today 2/5.00, and they were boosting a larger jar, so you know sales must really have dropped off, I doubt it will last. I think it was a 30% increase in amount of mayo, that's huge for these days.

    Unhappy

    And let's not forget that this affects our recipes.
    Normally when a recipe called for one can of evaporated milk
    I would just get a can and dump it in. But recently found that
    the recipe wasn't coming out right or wasn't moist enough.

    Sure enough I had to start opening a second can to make
    up the difference in less amount in the first can. Grrrr... :cangry:

    I also noticed this with the OJ - some are 64oz & others are 58 oz. The "big" containers are also smaller. Sneaky lil suckers!
