Cadbury chocolate is one that has got me with reducing the block by 50gr and same price. Does not match up with recipes. Ok down off my soap box.

So true....Everything seems to be shrinking in size but going up in price. Just look at ice cream, a half gallon is not a half gallon anymore. I swear there is more air in a bag of chips now than chips!

Actually they have been doing this for years - but its been gradual

We own a full service service station and a pretty large convenience store - and thats how we noticed this

Seems like every week I go to Walmart they are hiking up prices.

I have to say have not noticed a big change in toilet paper, but that is probably because I tend to swap around depending what brands are on special, only keeping away from the really rough, super thin very cheap stuff.
