Have you ever wondered why your favorite chocolate bar got thinner over the past few years but its price remained the same? There are many such products whose quality or quantity have been compromised due to increasing inflation.

In the subreddit “Shrinkflation”, people expose some products that have shrunk so much without any price decrease. In fact, it has increased in some cases!
