Granola Bars New Packaging

I noticed my beloved Albertson's Chewy Granola Bars (Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip) have been repackaged with an orange wrapper, but I didn't figure out just what that meant till other other day.

They changed the size!

Check this out:

They have been reduced from 10 ounces to .84 ounces!

Let us look at the nutritional data on the back:

You can see the the carbs, sugars, and protein have gone down by one gram each.

How about size?

Take a look:

The new bar looks longer!

But how about thickness?

It looks about the same thickness, but it doesn't look as dense.

As far as cost, I didn't keep track of the old price, so I couldn't tell you.

I hate change.

I find this so annoying and I stop buying favorites when they do that. Ex: Dreyer's shrinking their 1/2 gallons of ice cream and I swear they have more air than ever whipped in. It looks like they added more ingredients to the bars. Lots of companies are charging more for less with less quality ingredients.
