Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Loses One Ounce, Box Gets Taller

I wish I could lose 7% of my body mass and get taller at the same time, but I’m out of luck…because I’m not a box of cereal. Reader Panda discovered that this amazing change has come to Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut cereal. It was hit by the Grocery Shrink Ray, but at the same time sustained a hit from the Box Growth Ray. Which might be a thing.

In all of these photos, the older, larger box is on the right.


The box does become just a bit more slender to make up for the increase in height.


Oh, well. You won’t miss one fewer bowl of cereal in the box, will you?
