What happened to my pasta?

November 8th, 2007 at 10:45 pm

I happened to look at the back of a box of pasta the other day...I recalled it served 8, and wanted to know just how terrible we were for needing a whole box for just 5 of us.

I discovered it only served 7...when did my pasta box shrink?

Or did the serving size grow?

Then I thought a box was supposed to be a pound...this box has 13.5oz...maybe thats where my other serving went. The box measures what I remember a box of pasta being, it just has less weight.

I am curious if it is because the pasta is whole wheat...I need to check the next time I am in the store to see if a box of white pasta still has a pound or not.

    Is sugar 4 lbs now??? It has been ages since I bought a bag of sugar.

    My plain white pasta (Creamette or store brand) is still a pound, but they did shrink the whole wheat. Another reason why healthy is expensive sometimes!

    But I love spaghetti night anyway!

    I remember writing a similar post last year when I made muffins from a mix - the box said they only made 5 instead of 6!! Seems they're shrinking a lot of things...
