While repacking our pantry, I noticed something. Over the past two years, for both our pantry and our survival packs, I’ve been buying Libby’s canned beef thru Amazon (I stopped this year when Costco started carrying its superior canned beef again) — well, at some point during that time Libby’s shrunk their cans.
Notice the height difference in the adjacent stacks. Same number of cans, different heights. I knew manufacturers were reducing can sizes (from, say, 12 oz. to 10 oz. at the same price) to save money, a sort of hidden inflation — but I didn’t know they were putting the same portion in smaller cans.
That’s either a fascinating look at the single-minded pursuit of cost-cutting, or I’ve discovered that Libby’s is engaging in massive fraud. Oh well, I’ve moved to Costco’s Kirkland brand anyway.
