According to a new survey, popular supermarket staples such as chips, chocolate bars, and peanut butter have been decreased in size while maintaining the same price.

App that helps you save money Frugl published a list of products impacted by’shrinklation,’ in which popular things have shrunk in size while costs have remained the same or increased.

Unbeknownst to Australian buyers, some goods have shrunk in size by up to 20% without a price adjustment, according to the investigation.

Customers will still pay $2 for Mars chocolate bars, which have been reduced from 53g to 47g, while Arnotts Tina Wafers have been reduced from 250g to 200g and will still cost $3.05.

Burger Rings and Twisties have both lowered their serving sizes from 100g to 90g while maintaining the same $2.20 price tag.

Other food goods had been decreased in size by 17% while costs were increasing, according to the research.

Bega Peanut Butter’s container size has shrunk from 500g to 470g, and the price has increased by 20 cents from $5.70 to $5.90 in June 2020.

According to Frugl CEO Sean Smith, the items are unlikely to ever return to their previous size.

Prices are more likely to come down, according to the CEO, but this will not happen ‘anytime soon.’
