    Iceland frozen super sweet sweetcorn, now 800g for £1, reduced from 900g.

    Had a brief look in the chiller today, seems all Iceland veg is 800g now.

    If you are partial to Maltesers you'd be better off buying the 120G boxes as they tend to be the same RRP when the pouches aren't on offer!

    I noticed some Duo bars for sale at the weekend. As I'd never heard of Duo I took a closer look.


    Basically they were well known brands (like Mars, Bounty etc) but marketed as two of the shrunk size bars in one pack.


    So much for the manufacturers' spurious claim that this is what the customer wants and an aid in the fight against obesity!

    The Thorntons Brownie Bites etc have gone from 10 to 9. The packaging is square, not rectangular.

    Cobra lager shrinks in size
    Previously Cobra large bottles were 660ml now they have redisigned the bottle with a " coca cola esk " style bottle with a narrow waist which results in the loss of 40ml of precious lager, but the price is the same.

    Welcome to the world of shrinkflation.

    This has been going on with all foods in recent years.

    I'm sure they'll tell you it's what the customer wants and they're helping you to be more drink aware.
