Planters Nuts Downsized Yet Again!

In 2011 the Weekly Universe reported the downsizing of Planters Deluxe Mixed Nuts from 21 oz to 18.25 oz. Even so, the Santa Monica, California Vons supermarket kept the same price -- $9.99.

Over the next four years, the price on Planters Deluxe Mixed Nuts increased to $13.98 -- occasionally reverting to a "sale" price of $9.99. Then just last month, it was downsized yet again -- from 18.25 to 15.25 oz. -- yet still priced at $13.98!

Only four years ago, Planters Deluxe Mixed Nuts cost $9.99 for 21 oz -- now it's $13.98 for 15.25 oz. That's an approximately 92% price increase in four years -- a nearly doubling of the price!
