    Pringles 190g up to 200g but the price is so variable that it is impossible to compare.

    Its probably spurious, as this is a brand that is often discounted / can be found on offer.

    Ice-cream manufacturers can afford to be "generous": their secret ingredient (upto 50%) to make the product soft and whippy is in fact air

    Colman sauces such as horseradish have shrunk from around 225-250g to 145g.

    If your family have this it won't last a Sunday roast

    Some of Colman's products are manufactured in Germany which is why they've probably shrunk (Pound vs. Euro)-I noticed at work last night Nestle Shreddies were 500g but have shrunk to 415g.

    This just in (as they say):

    More than 2,500 products subject to shrinkflation, says ONS

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40703866

    And to forestall the usual political axe grinders on this forum, let me add from the ONS's conclusion: "Our analysis doesn't show a noticeable change following the referendum that would point to a Brexit effect."

    So it is down to greedy companies taking advantage, much as the wiser commenters suspected all along.

    It amazed me that they've just realised that you need to compare cost per kg. Apparently they've been using unit costs while the units keep shrinking. Doh!!!
