Early this morning, the driver of a tractor-trailer carrying 45,000 pounds of margarine and whipped cream crashed his vehicle along Interstate 465, pouring out its cargo on the highway. [More]
I’ve been a fan and loyal devotee of Parkay Margarine since I was a kid. Imagine the letdown and disappointment when I picked up a new tub of the margarine and felt it was remarkably lighter in weight. It looks like whipping a bunch of air into a pound of margarine makes it 20% lighter and the same cost to the consumer. After searching all over for a tub of “original” to compare it to, I found that the “new” Parkay is now 13 ounces instead of 16 ounces. Not only that, but it comes in the same sized tub and costs the same too.
