Price Rises Being Hidden

42 posts in this topic

I have been noticing a trend in products being shrunk over the past few years

Its not like they reduce the price

You get a packet of crisps and its mostly air in the pack

What other price rises are hidden?

this was ordered a number of years ago by the government in the guise that food packaging has to be made smaller because of the increased obesity in this country.

Thats a next one I clocked too

Trying to make out your getting a deal when your not

Buying 1 litre bottles in Tesco is better to get 3 bottles then getting the 3 litre bottles as it works out cheaper

Loool yeah that one hit me. They also changed the flavour, it used to be dark green and taste good, then they took the sugar out, like they did with Tizer and a host of other sh*t. Lol at even Eating Fruitellas anymore, they used to be the best sweets out, now they are shite.

This is because they have replaced sugar with shitty aspartame

Lilt, Tango, Sprite and bare other drinks that aint even diet drinks have aspartame and not sugar

It used to be only diet drinks that had aspartame but not anymore

See them switch this up a few years back when I got a can of Lilt and it tasted like sh*t

Even sweets like Polo's dont have sugar anymore but aspartame and its other sweets too

Yeah, I heard there were loads of complaints because things were getting bigger with not much increase in price.

Obviously corporations didn't need to be told twice to agree.

I notice that it drinks that u can mainly taste the difference when they stop using sugar.

Food tastes pretty much the same to me

Sainsburys deals are good if you find the right ones/shop around, we had a meeting a couple of weeks back and they said that if a customer came in and bought every deal we had Sainsburys as a company would take a loss.

Yeah I noticed this, but what you gonna do.

In regards to the deals, if you don't do the math then that's your fault.

I swear most deals are new products companies want you to buy so sell for a loss in the short term?
