I've noticed at the grocery store lately that lots of things come packaged for two, or so they say. This is a trap!!! Tonight I looked a "Pain por Deux." This cute little loaf of bread actually serves six. I bought tiramisu for two, and split it 3 ways. Unfortunately after I ate it I found out there are actually FOUR servings per container. So instead of having a bit less than I thought, I ate a bit more. This is making potato chip manufacturers look like saints when it comes to advertising. At least they recognize that when I buy a snack bag of chips there is a good chance I am going to eat the WHOLE bag all by MYSELF. Thank you Lays for telling me how bad the hit is right up front, and not selling me a snack bag that serves two, not one. I'm well accustomed to reading labels. I do it all the time, even on products I buy all the time. But please, just be honest with me. Don't sell me something that looks like it serves 2, when it really serves 4 or six. My eyes are old and tired. I can't read all that fine print. Just tell it like it is, and if I want it I am going to buy it anyway.
