    I assume they won't do this for drugs.

    I've noticed that the size of Snicker and Mars bars have reduced but they're still the same price. Also in India, instead of 250cl bottles of soft drinks, they come in smaller 200cl sizes. These as cheaper than the larger bottles, but not significantly less.

    It would be interesting for me if they could "shrink" the portion of a dish in the restaurant.
    Mostly they are too much for me.
    However, I won't pay the same price!
