Listen, every time I eat ice cream my whole family pays the price. If they have to endure that kind of sacrifice, I should at least get a full serving.

Sounds like the "pints" at Greek Peak. In fact, Greek was the first time I encountered a dozen chicken wings being 10 wings. "Excuse me, there aren't a dozen wings here." "Oh, we don't sell them by the dozen, an order is 10 wings" Now, I'm sorry to say, most places sell them that way. I must be getting old, still can't get over the fact those 10 wings are going for $12.95. I remember 10¢ wing nights at bars.

I’m still upset I can’t get a hold of any almond bars anymore. I loved those things.

Ahhh....in the case of those who consider a “pint” to be a full, single serving......they doing you a favor cutting you off at 14 ounces, lactose intolerant or not!

I don’t consume a pint in one sitting as often as I used to....just like I no longer consider two Big Macs, a large fries, and a Shamrock Shake to be a light meal.

Man, it would be a tough decision for me....ice cream versus snack chips....as to which is more sacrosanct.  I’d probably have to go snack chips....

It happens with a lot of products. It's easier for a company to increase revenue by cutting back on product size as opposed to increasing prices.  I believe B&J is still 16 oz.  HaagenDazs was the first company I noticed years ago that went to a 14 oz "pint".  Ice cream is serious business for me as well!

Unfortunately, they often don’t just lower the size to maintain the price....they also raise the prices!

Most companies abandoned the half gallon a long time ago as well.
