It's not my imagination right? Bumble bee and starkist (that I know of) cans of tuna are smaller than they used to be. And the price is the same. One can used to be the perfect size for one sandwich, now I need 1.5.....

Haha, maybe you just got bigger?

I think the tuna cans are the same size but the price has gone up dramatically. I remember when Bumble-Bee would be on sale for $0.25 each. Now when it is on sale it is $0.75 each!!! Also I am talking about just a 10 year span.

If only that were true.

I seem to remember there used to be 2.5 servings per can, for a total of 150 calories. The new ones are 100 cals total.

I stock at a grocery store and most of the standard 6 oz cans we are used to carrying are being phased out. The smaller 5 oz cans are being sent in there place. Same price less food. Sucks.
