Inflation / greed 101............. [View all]

Does anyone remember prior to the pandemic that Whole Food use to sell a (6) pack of glazed sourdough donuts for $5.99.
Now, Whole Foods has decided to sell the same donuts in a (4) pack for $6.99.................besides greed that is what is called "inflation" and getting less............so if and when a right fucking winers comes out and tries to blame Biden for the cost of living inflation BS...........just ask if they know anything............about donuts................they probably don't.........

Remember Ice Cream....................

The ice cream scams
June 5, 2022 • 9:15 am

When I was younger—actually, it doesn’t seem that long ago—when one bought a big tub of ice cream, it was a full half gallon. Then the companies started shrinking the sizes of the containers from 64 ounces to 56 ounces, and now the big container of most name brands, like Breyers (the go-to “quality brand” of my youth), are a paltry 48 ounces. That’s a quart and a half, or a full 25% reduction in size from the original.
