Diminishing Pringles

img_20161221_201157Oh lovely little Pringles,
with your shape that fits my mouth,
it’s sad that they’ve diminished you,
and given me less to taste.

Why did they need to change you?
you were perfect as you were,
but your makers thought of money,
and sadly didn’t care,
that your value had degraded,
with your newly shrunken size,
so now when I find the bigger you,
I am filled with quiet surprise.

So thanks to my local reject shop,
today my desire has been sated,
and I have happily munched and crunched
on the shape you were originally created.

      Absolutely right Lindsey. Manufacturers have no shame, in the name of profits. 😉

    Hahahaha! That made me laugh!
    I hate the fact that packets of crisps have about two in them or that cream eggs now taste like melted plastic. But putting less Pringles in a tub for the same price?! Now that’s all out war!

      No, tis even worse than that Lily, they have them smaller in total size – still seems to be about the same number, just smaller chips. Sneaky and unfair.

        Whaaaaa?! Okay, that is sneaky and unfair. Every time I have a treat nowadays, I feel cheated? I mean have you seen what they’ve done to Tolberones?!!

          Nope – don’t like then. BREATHE Lily, breathe. It’s ok for me not to like them, it means all the more for you 🙂

    This is absolutely devastating news. I’m going to need some time alone to figure out how I can move forward with my life…

      I know, it shattered me at first, but then I found a few places that still had a stash of the original, and I bought multiples, but now it’s down to the wire and despondency is setting in …sigh.
