According to a report, manufacturers of all sorts of products are shrinking package sizes and reducing products without lowering prices. It’s all just another “thank you, Joe Biden.”
Companies are shrinking the size and contents yogurt, tissues, candy, soap and more thanks to Biden’s spiraling economy.
As everything in the country falls apart, companies are trying to stay ahead of supply chain snafus, shortages, and economic collapse. And who bears the brunt. Average, every day Americans. Like always.
In the U.S., a small box of Kleenex now has 60 tissues; a few months ago, it had 65. Chobani Flips yogurts have shrunk from 5.3 ounces to 4.5 ounces. In the U.K., Nestle slimmed down its Nescafe Azera Americano coffee tins from 100 grams to 90 grams. In India, a bar of Vim dish soap has shrunk from 155 grams to 135 grams.
Dworsky began noticing smaller boxes in the cereal aisle last fall, and shrinkflation has ballooned from there. He can cite dozens of examples, from Cottonelle Ultra Clean Care toilet paper, which has shrunk from 340 sheets per roll to 312, to Folgers coffee, which downsized its 51-ounce container to 43.5 ounces but still says it will make up to 400 cups. (Folgers says it’s using a new technology that results in lighter-weight beans.)
NBC goes on to report that sizes have been cut for Cottonelle, Kleenex, Pantene Pro-V Curl Perfection conditioner, Domino’s Pizza, Keebler snack products, and more.Commentary Economy Inflation Joe Biden
