    At my local store, they sell bags of chips with the label “Buy 2 for only $5” when each bag is $2.50. It fools me into thinking it’s the deal of the century.

      It’s kind of sad but McDonalds does this too.

        When I see that, I just stared distastefully at it, wondering who would be dumb enough to think it was a good deal…

    I discovered this dilemma at a vending machine while wandering hospital halls a couple weeks ago. “Hey, they have my preferred candy bar! Let’s see… Mini, regular, king size, or two pack?” I eventually started figuring it in price per pound.

    This works great in theory. As this fellow finds out, ONLY in theory.

    Yeah, I tried to do that with a candy bar at work today. “Eat half now, have the rest after lunch…” 2 minutes.

    Or a package of cookies; after all, it’s only ONE package, just a couple of pounds…
    Would the box of the little two-packs fare as well? Ummm, maybe!

    I am entertained when the Doritos are 2 for $5, but individual bags are $2.49. There’s a sneaky pricing! I just take them through as tn one-bag orders…

    Laura Scudder’s potato chips were my first lesson in this. back in the family’s Bay Area days, we used to buy the big bag of chips that had two smaller bags inside. My oldest sister (who never outgrew her spoilsport streak) explained that the big bag was nearly the same price as two regular bags

    you want more, go to sam’s club or costco. another thought; just thinking about “supersize me” where he talks about how cup sizes have evolved
