Have you noticed that chocolate bars are shrinking
?The prices of chocolate and sugar are always going up. The chocolate bar makers pass the money on to buyers. They know that people don’t want to pay more,so they make smaller chocolate bars. In one year a chocolate bar may go from 150g to 125g to 100g in weight while the price stays the same. When the bar gets so small that no one will buy it,they will make it larger and the price goes up,too.
