A popular brand in the PNW is Umpquah from the Umpquah Dairy in Oregon. They've been the last holdout in cutting the carton size to 1.5 qt. They've finally fallen to Bidenflation. I was in a store yesterday and the Umpquah cartons in front were still 1.75 but all the new stock behind them were smaller. About the only things that haven't been reduced are a gallon of milk and a pound of butter.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

have you ever seen this country change, for the worse, so quickly and thoroughly, as it has under the obama2.0 presidency?
and all this following a distinct and complete repudiation of hillary when told us she was gonna do the same thing?


its always been my ambition to embrace a protocol that requires me to strain everything through its "filter of acceptability" before codifying concepts into my beliefs.

Orange juice is now 52 ounce

Instead of 64oz

I thought, what the hell that seems different.

I’m not an old fart that drinks that everyday so that particular adjustment is “new to me”


And 52 ounces is more money than the 64 according to the grocery lady that shops for me

Yeah but the pancakes at the Holiday Inn Express are now 5" diameter instead of 6."

That's gotta hurt.

Like companies ain't making larger profits than ever before, while making overhead cost comfortably in ratio to the profits they make now.
Like they ain't exploiting Honk for Joey inflation and adding the profit inflation also.
And have the gall to say it's all because of Honk for Joey.
Make 15 to 25% profit before.
Let make it 20 to 30% now and the rube consumers will think it is all because of Honk for Joey.
Let's make that our standard line whenever consumers question it.
Ok guys this is a situation we can exploit easily.
Meeting is over.



Anybody that thinks companies ain't adding profit inflation into all this bullschit.
Is one naive living under a rock muldoon...

Reducing size at increased price is profit inflation.
Especially when companies have the same amount to sell as before.

Wait until the feds declare the official pound to be 12 oz. or the official gallon to be 3 quarts. I'd bet that 75% of the country wouldn't even notice.

Not necessarily… raw materials cost more…transportation and labor costs too…

If I can spell Boyzee correctly, you can spell Umpqua correctly.


Obey lawful commands. Problem solved.

Blue Bell prominently on the front of their carton “Still 1/2 Gallon”.

Braums went to 3 pints a few years back with an ad campaign of what amounted to “still the same unit price”. Of course that was just a way to raise prices later when everybody was used to the smaller size.

A customer of mine drilled 21 natural gas wells this year.
4 1/2” casing used to come in lengths of 42-44 feet. Now they’re 35-38 feet. And cost almost triple what they did before.
