Working in retail it’s something I’ve noticed a lot of and occasionally a customer will make a comment, specifically with bags of chips. Not only are you getting less, small bags of chips have gone from $1.99 to $2.69 since COVID.

Personally I first noticed it with Gatorade. The big ones used to be 32oz, then they redesigned the bottle and it’s 28oz. now.

sh1t's happening all over. Less volume, worse quality for more money.

The pandemic and supply chain issues were a great excuse. But now that they're used to those margins, what's going to make them go back to making less money.

This is the new normal and a tweet from the Biden account isn't going to change sh1t.

I wonder if corporations sometimes purposely make sh1t bad for consumers when a politician they don't like is in power just so that they can finesse people into believing it's the politician's fault. People will believe it too, just like they believe the President can do anything about oil & gas prices...

Feb 11 - Biden calls on snack companies to stop shrinkflation

WASHINGTON, Feb 11 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday called on snack companies to stop shrinkflation, which is when businesses cut product sizes but keep prices the same, describing the practice as "a rip-off."
"Some companies are trying to pull a fast one by shrinking the products little by little and hoping you won't notice," Biden said in a video posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, ahead of Super Bowl LVIII.
"Give me a break. The American public is tired of being played for suckers. I'm calling on companies to put a stop to this. Let's make sure businesses do the right thing now," he said.

Biden, who offered no solutions or policies to address the practice, did not name any specific companies but several brands were shown in the video, including Gatorade, Doritos, Breyers and Tostitos.
Although inflation appears to be slowing, the economy remains Americans' overall top concern, cited by 22% of poll respondents, as they have struggled with inflation and other aftershocks of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released last month.

Since taking office, Biden has made a pitch for lower supermarket prices, pushed drug makers to lower insulin costs, hotel chains to reduce fees and tried to diversify the meat-packing industry after beef prices skyrocketed in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Nobody cares about tweets from Biden's handlers. He probably doesn't even get to keep a phone on his person cause losing it would be a national security risk.

sh1t I noticed 12 years ago with the chips.
Went to buy my kid chips @ the corner store and they was 1 dollar. As a kid in the 90s it was 25 cents a bag and it was 75% full... snickers were 50 cents sh1t coke and Pepsi was 99 cents...

Miss them days, man! 99 cents used to get you a 20 ounce pop. Name brand at that, with the chance of running a free one depending on what your cap said! My buddies and I used to hustle the stores, you could tilt the bottle and see what the cap said. Only ever bought the winning caps lol

the shrinkflation sh1t is real but imo the amount of chips you get in a bag has increased actually. it used to be like half the bag and the rest air. now it's somewhere around 3/4ths or more. i've noticed the change in the last 2 years. although it may be just the brand we usually get ruffles because that's what the kids like best and they're the big chip monsters of the household. is it just me?
