Can any tell me why arm and hammer boxes have shrunk ?! Is there suddenly a national shortage ? Has the price tripled ?!

I know that things cost a lot more than when i was a kid ! ( I used to laugh at my grandpa's stories too ) WTF ?! !!! Big AL

No inflation going on here. Nope, none at all.

After thinking "Arm and Hammer? That sounds hardcore" I actually googled it!
I've noticed over here the guys that sell stuff in packets have worked out that since people get all up in arms if you raise prices,
the thing to do is make the packets smaller instead.
Anyone notice that the cardboard tubes in toilet rolls are expanding, while the roll's diameter remains the same?
Tricksy sods

You have to admit that folks are using less baking soda these days , but toilet paper ? I think not . The shrinking box con job is the key to most diet packaging . Like "Lean Cuisines" . Same ingredients as "Hungry Man" just way less of it for more money .
