The Great 'shrinking food' Hunt Revisited

We featured this hunt back in 2010 (see original thread), but it seems manufacturers are up to their old tricks again by dropping products’ sizes while keeping prices the same (one forumite's spotted loaves of bread dropping from 800g to 750g). We want to know which foods you've seen shrinking in size, but not in price.

Are you sure it shrunk?

It's easy to think things used to be bigger (Martin remembers when Wagon Wheels were twice the size of his hands!) so please try and back it up with the stats and measures if you can.
