Grocery Shrink Ray has struck again!

I found an old box of Tuna Helper buried in the back of the cabinet.  The expiration date on it is from 2008.  I'd just bought a ton of * Helper, and this box seemed unusually heavy.  I checked the weight and it said it contained 8.4 ounces.  I checked the other * Helper boxes, and they were all 4 to 6 ounces!

The instructions also call for a 7 ounce can of tuna.  Good luck with that, since almost all tuna comes in 5 ounce cans now.

Nothing like a little time capsule to show just how much the manufacturers have been shrinking their products.
