THE CASE OF THE MISSING OREOS

September 27, 2018.  This post has nothing to do with the stock market or the bond market.  But it has everything to do with YOUR household budget.,,,,and a diversion from the Supreme Court freak show.

Having worked in the food industry for decades during our ‘corporate’ life, we are always interested in the grocery business.  Linked below is a sad, but kinda funny article, on what is happening with sky rocketing food prices……INFLATION.

It turns out I was right. A standard sized Oreo cookie package has always had three rows of 15 cookies, for 45 total in the package.
This year, however, they reduced the package size to 39 cookies.
That’s 13.3% less cookies. But… here’s the thing that made me mad…
They were selling these smaller packages for the exact same price as last year!
Six less cookies. Same price.
