An Open Letter to Betty Crocker, Since Their Comment Feature Is Currently Unavailable
I thought I had gotten used to the new packaging conventions, whereby companies short-change consumers by putting less actual product in the boxes/bags. But your 6.5-ounce muffins packs are a new low. Why? Because they make five muffins. Five. Not six, which one would assume is the standard as it has been for years. Five, which you won’t realize until you read the directions.
Now, I am generally out of the baking loop. I suppose it is possible that new five-cup muffin tins are in vogue. But if that is indeed the case then why does the stupid, tiny picture of the muffin tin on the back show SIX MUFFINS?
Would it kill you to put the appropriate amount of muffin mix in the bag which I am guessing would bring it up to the standard eight ounces and maybe forgo a little bit of profit? Or even raise the price if you are so inclined, but stop this muffin madness.
