Confectioneries

For some time now I have noticed that the manufacturers of confection products are resorting to very underhanded tactics to grab more of our monies. The first such trick I noticed was the mini Mars-bar which shrank in length by nearly one quarter but the wrapper stayed the same as did the price. The latest hoodwink comes from "THE NATURAL" Confectionery Company. The old packaging was 180g and normal cost was $2.85, the new pack is 240g and normal costs is $4.00. The simplest way to to explain the rip off is that previously 60g cost 95c and the same 60g now cost $1.00. I know that it is a very small difference but it is the deceit that bugs me.
