Re: Your latest purchases, cont.
M&M/Mars chocolates have been cutting back on the number of bars in their "Fun/Snack Pack Size" packages for the past few years or so. As late as the middle of the last decade a pack had 10 bars, then when chocolate prices rose they cut the number back to eight. Recently the number of bars in each package fell to six while the price has gone from an average of 99 cents to $1.49 during the same time period.
