Okay, so I knew that you couldn’t buy 2-liter Coca-Colas for $.69 anymore; I remember when that changed. And I knew that Jeno’s stopped putting those little seasoning packets in their pizza boxes for you to add before baking; no surprise there. But I have just one question…
WHEN DID THEY STOP SELLING 5 LB. BAGS OF SUGAR???
You mean to tell me that there is no such thing as “5 lbs. of sugar” anymore??? Are you kidding me right now? I had NO IDEA!!!
So now they are selling us 4 LBS. OF SUGAR??? Is that accurate? But I notice that the price is still at the 5 lb. mark. Four pounds of sugar for the price of five pounds. I am dumbfounded.
In case you are wondering why this is taking me by surprise the way it is, let me explain. You see, we do not use refined sugar, so I don’t even remember the last time I bought it. (But I DO remember that the standard weight is 5 lbs.!) So when I saw in at the market today in 4 lbs bags, I about flipped! And, to top off my flipping out, the once “10 lb bag of sugar” has apparently now become an “8 LB BAG OF SUGAR!!!” (for the price of the old 10 lb bag)
Please tell me that everyone knows about this. And when did it happen??
Is sugar RARE now? Good lord!
I have to go off and ponder this for a while.
Maybe smoke a peace pipe.
