Your Incredibly Shrinking Food

Geoff Williams tells you how you’re getting less for more in Less Food for Your Money:

“Approximately one-third of items at the grocery store have lost content since 2007, according to the Nielsen Co., which tracks market trends. For example, the Dial Corp. shaved its soap bars from 4.5 oz. to 4 oz.; the biggest jar of Hellmann’s mayonnaise dropped from 32 oz. to 30; and a tub of Breyer’s ice cream shrank from 56 oz. to 48.

“Meanwhile, consumers last year saw food prices rise some 7 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”
