Where’s The Mayo?

“Some things always come in quarts: milk, motor oil, and mayonnaise, for example. You don’t have to look at the net weight statement, because a quart is 32 ounces, and that is what you always get,” writes the MousePrint blog.

That’s no longer true of Hellman’s Mayo, who, in response to “inflationary pressures,” are reducing the size of their mayo jars from 32 to 30 ounces. Price will remain the same.

Unlike a similar downsize seen with Tide laundry detergent, mayo potency will not increase commensurately.
