    I don't know if this was mentioned, I was in a rush and picked up the cracker barrel cheese on sale at Independent for $4.99 when I got home I noticed the size was reduced from 500 grams to 460 grams.this was the marbled cheese not the other cheeses that are smaller in size.I'm really getting fed up with all these companies!!! I guess I'll start buying more cheese in the states!!

    I might be mistaken, but I believe the dairy industry is regulated differently in the US. I would be worried about hormones, antibiotics, steroids...
    Worth looking into to see if it's worth the cheaper price.

    I knew they had done it for the specialty cheese (Havarti, jalepeno, etc) but now the "regular" cheeses? Booooo!

    Always watch the unit price anyway.

    We just need to decide if we want the price to be higher for the same size, or the same price for a smaller size. I think most companies have gone with the latter.

    Ugghh, not the cheese. I will no longer buy that brand then. I want the price to shrink not the product. Thanks for posting.

    I bought a box of Dad's Goody Rings last week (haven't bought them in while). They come in a smaller box now but didn't think anything of it until I got home and opened it. It is now 250g, down from 350g last time. There are 2 rows of cookies with 9 cookies in each row. Seriously....2 rows of 9 cookies. The plastic tray they sit in is fitted at the bottom to hold the cookies in place while the top is wide to make the package look the same width as usual. That's almost 4 dollars, on sale! for 18 cookies. DONE. I tried to contact the company online but can't find their website anywhere now.
