88 Times People Were So Appalled By “Shrinkflation”, They Just Had To Share The Proof Online (New Pics)

Posted by admin on

Have you ever stopped and noticed the product you bought a while ago being smaller now than it was before? Well, perhaps you weren’t dreaming when you thought that. With recent inflation that has touched most countries all around the world, companies now more than ever are trying to hike up the prices for their products, and some of them are smaller than before, be it a roll of toilet paper or even a pack of gummy bears.

A popular subreddit called “Shrinkflation” has consumers posting and discussing all the ways the manufacturers are trying to trick our eyes into thinking that the product is still the same, whether it may be the size, formula, or even subtle changes in the packaging quality.

If you’d love to see more products that were “shrunken” in size, make sure to check out our previous post on Bored Panda by clicking here.
