Product size changes.
hmmm, change is good? I mean when things are going along just fine and dandy, we should change the sizes of packages, make them smaller. It is the wise thing to do. Give people less and charge … uhm more? Yup that is a good plan.
no one will notice
Ground beef. I have a beef with this package size change. It is ANNOYING. where is my explanation mark. !
A while ago, bacon changed from 500 grams to 375. But we found, at costco, better bacon than we were buying, still packed in the 500 gram package, and it is less costly.
So the hamburger people said, that was such a great idea, lets do this too.
Ok, so I plan on making a meat loaf, the recipe in my head calls for 500 grams…. about a pound of ground beef. Most recipes seem to follow with using a pound of ground beef when you follow along, it is a good amount.
But now the package of ground beef they were advertising at such a great price…. when you read the size… was only 375 grams….
Do I add extra bread crumbs?
lots of extra seasoning?
me thinks… someone in marketing land…. is a total idiot.
When we buy ground beef to make hamburgers, which we did last night, and they were yummy, a 375 gram package, will only make three burgers. Jill doesn’t get one?
She will be annoyed. We will have to hide when we eat ours, so as not to upset her….
We should make extra french fries?
When the marketing person feels bad about their silliness and it torments them, when they come for therapy, I will have five minute sessions for them, so as not to upset them.
I will of course invoice them for an hour. You know, to keep with their trend.
