Grocery Shrink Ray Removes Granola Bars From Quaker Boxes

Consumerist reader Brad went shopping for some Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip granola bars the other day, only to find that the Grocery Shrink Ray had zapped away 20% of the bars but left the price the same.

We asked Brad if it was possible that the smaller box, which contains only 8 granola bars, was priced the same as the pictured box of 10 because it’s a lower sugar variety. But he says that the price for the 8-count lower sugar bars is the same as the previous price for the 10-count lower sugar bars.
