Cool Re: Grocery Shopping Tips

When a manufacturer changes a product's packaging, the package may not be the only thing that changes. I recently purchased a package of pre-cooked sliced bacon that boasted "NOW! MORE BACON!" on the package. The old package of the same brand of bacon boasted 2.41 ounces of bacon; the new package boasted 2.57 ounces. However, the actual number of bacon slices dropped from 15 in the old package to 12 in the new package, and each slice was little bigger than the ones in the old package--and the new package cost more than the old, to boot...

Compare the price per ounce, especially between the old packages and the new ones!
