Have A Look At 25 Most Confusing Cases Of “Shrinkflation”

We often go to the shopping mall and buy familiar brands we’ve used for many years. Sometimes, we realize that the product’s package has changed, but most of us just take it to the cart without thinking much. Only when we bring the stuff home and accidentally place it next to the same one we got before, do we likely spot something suspicious. As you may guess, the package is not the only different point! It turns out that the size of the product has shrunk, and the manufacturers trick our eyes into believing that it is still the same.
With the global economic recession these days, businesses are struggling to retain customers. Though the recent inflation forces companies to raise products’ prices, it’s not the ideal strategy for customer retention. Price-conscious consumers may switch to more affordable alternatives if one brand becomes too expensive. That’s why many companies choose to reduce the size or quantity of their products to maintain their profit without shocking consumers with high prices. 
This "shrinkflation" may be figured out easily if the package shows the exact net quantity of the product. However, in some cases, the weight written in packages is still the same as before, while the actual weight is not. Meanwhile, for stuff like food, you probably realize the difference only after putting it in your mouth. What could be more disappointing than taking a big bite of a subway and the only taste is from the bun?
