Hubby is very partial to gingernut biscuits. So am I for that matter, and Maya too.
We have a small tupperware type box that is ideal to hold the 30 gingernut biscuits in a packet, though we had noticed that sometimes we would only get 29.
What with the price now standing at 49p, I have not been buying them quite so often, but this evening Hubby fancied some and we pushed the boat out and opened a packet.
There was an awful lot of space left in the box, so he counted the biscuits and only 25.
They are also smaller than we remember, so I asked him to check the packet.
Yep……… only 250g now, not 300g as they were, so not only are we paying even more, but getting less for our money.
You know why we didn’t notice?
Because the packet is the same size to look at, just more air at each end.
