Normally you get more for your money when you buy larger pack sizes. Has anyone else noticed any such anomalies?
In the first instance, the contents will look smaller because the package is larger...in the second instance, it's the same thing...
So are they really trying to make less seem more in the first case, or does it just look less *because* the packing's larger? Would you feel you'd had better value for money if they'd put the same amount in a smaller pot for the same money?
Food for thought, I guess.
