Ocean Spray Trims 2 Ounces From The Can

Ocean Spray Trims 2 Ounces From The Can

Or, how the Ocean Spray Grinch Stole Christmas (and buggered the Thanksgiving Turkey a bit too).

OK, I can almost forgive this one. How many folks REALLY finish a full one pound can?

HOWEVER… we’ve got a load of dishes made with “one can of cranberry sauce” that are now wrong. For example, we have a jello dessert made with red and green layers. The red layer has cranberry sauce added, the green one has (something else… it’s opaque… maybe milk?) At any rate, the cranberry layer is now just a bit less satisfying.

So here’s a big fat RASPBERRY to Ocean Spray and their shrunken little berries.

    I’ve liked this stuff since I was a kid long ago. What I don’t like is this gimmick the food companies play with size reduction. The only recourse is to do without or to go with the store brands where two cans are only a little more expensive than one of the name brand. I say just raise the price, blame the government for devaluing the currency, and have done with it.
