Grocery Shrink Ray Strikes Chocolate Chips, Leaves Recipe Unscathed

Reader Mike discovered that Private Selection brand chocolate chips were a recent victim of the Grocery Shrink Ray. However, the company forgot to remove a key piece of evidence after the fact. That, or they’re just trying to sell more bags.

The bag now contains 10 ounces of chocolate goodness instead of the previous 12, but the recipe on the back of the bag was left unchanged. Oops. “The shrink ray found its most important target but failed to remove all evidence. To adjust I just need to be sure to use only 1.67 eggs,” Mike observed.
