Photo of the Day: Hidden Inflation

Not sure when they changed the size of the bag (I don’t buy candy very often) but if it went to 11.4 ounces from 12 ounces and the price stayed the same, that’s the same as a 5% price increase. I also think it’s funny that the bag is a lot bigger than it needs to be based on the contents inside. Just another way companies mislead customers.
