Shrink Ray Zaps Jack In The Box Sauce Packets

If you want to slather your Jack in the Box grub in sweet & sour sauce you’re going to need to grab more packets, because as Jason spotted in this photo, the amount of sauce in each mini-container has shrunk from 1 ounce to 0.875 ounces.

True, these packets are free, and true, it’s tough to notice that 0.125 ounces of sweet & sour are missing from your fries/nuggets, but this is a dire sign indeed. The GDP numbers may say that the recession is over, but sauce packet shrinkage is in full effect.
