Walker Crisps are under fire after it cuts 2 bags of crisps from multipacks but price remains the same.
Reports this weekend say customers are angry after the number of packs in a multipack bag have been cut.
There are just 22 bags of crisps rather than the original number of 24. But the price has stayed the same as £3.50. A consumer expert has warned shoppers felt “short-changed”.
Money Saving Expert’s reporter told the Sun: “When products get smaller but prices stay the same, shoppers rightly feel short-changed.”
“If your favourtie brand has got smaller but the price hasn’t, consider ‘downshifting’ by dropping one brand level from your casual choice – if you can’t tell the difference, stick with the cheaper one.”
“If you buy £1 bag of these Walkers Taste Icons crisps, then there’s a QR code on the back that you can go online and it gives you £5 off when you spend £20 or more at local restaurants and takeaways. You can redeem on food or soft drinks so it’s a good way to support your local food emporium.”
Earlier this year, a study of 2,000 adults found 87% feel products they buy seem smaller than they were years ago, with 83% noticing the difference in their favourite chocolates the most.
