Doesn't it make you mad that companies are giving you half the food for twice the price, I just noticed this again the other day...when I was making this peanutbutter cup cheesecake for a dessert. You cut up Reese Peanutbutter cups for on the top, and I bought 2 packs of 8 peanutbutter cups=16, and it only was suppose to call for 6 peanutbutter cups, but holy cow-they were about the size of a 50 cent piece....I couldn't believe it...they use to be at least twice that size. I had to use about 13 of them to cover my cheesecake.

That just is not right, that everything gets smaller, or they change the taste of it, and it just totally stinks, cause there's nothing you can do about it.

But you go to a restaurant and their proportions keep on getting larger.

That is true about Restaurants. It seems like you have to get the better deal to save money and get this enormous amount of food that you can't eat all of. I guess that they had to cut out the portion somewhere?

I got a "Biggie" drink at Wendy's the other day, and it was HUGE!! They're not the normal size that they used to be. It was like ordering a Burger King "King Size" drink.

And, Isis, I agree...Reese cups have shrunk. I guess we're supposed to buy the "Big Cup."

Never get a kid's cup at Denny's. My palm of my hand hand is bigger than the cup, and I have small hands.

I never eat fast food, or get biggie drinks ever, but I did see the Super Size documentary so I do know that they have enormous size porportions...that is why everyone is fat.

They should just make stuff the regular size. not shrink the normal stuff...and not make these gigantic things...people need to stay on the middle ground.

Yeah the supersize menu definitely has turned me off to McDonalds, it just hasn't too much yet from other places like Gringos!
