Over the past year we have seen changes taking place in just about everything, yes change happens only the change we have been seeing is a change by companies making products much smaller. Obvious examples of this fairly recent either greedy or inflationary practice can easily be seen in the stores that sell bulkier items such as Costco or Bj’s. In addition to the notable size differences we have also seen a cheapening of products going on as well, substituting ingredients for less expensive ingredients, changing product sub names that legally work for the newly implemented ingredients. Either way this massive change is going on from textile materials to Dial liquid bath soap.
Dial liquid bath soap came in 2 -15oz bottles equaling 30oz for $9.99 US$ and in the recent weeks have changed to 3 smaller bottles coming out to an overall shortage of 10 ozs, but they make it 3 bottles to trick the consumer into thinking its actually more. In fact we wouldn’t be surprised at all if the ingredients as well has been manipulated in order to garner even more revenue. We thought why would they do this?
The Dial Corporation, is an American company that is a subsidiary of German company Henkel AG & Co. KGaA (Henkel Consumer Goods Inc.) that is a manufacturer of personal-care and household-cleaning products based in Scottsdale, AZ.
It could be one of many reasons starting with preparing for the upcoming inflation that is bound to hit sooner or later. It could be to stimulate stock pricing and simply just move forward with the trickery that most big companies use today in order to grab every last penny out of products. Perhaps it’s the fact for Dial that it is a European company dealing with the shrinking U.S. Dollar. The companies are stating this is for the reason of increased energy, transport and manufacturing. I call bullshit, I think it may have something to do with greed and an elevation in people and consumers that really don’t care or care to look.
Textiles are another quite obvious change with much lesser materials being used. We heard this actually began a couple years ago, but now the change is very apparent as almost all male t-shorts are much shorter than usual. Wash them once or twice and you will be wearing an 80’s belly bomber. Ingredient changes are widespread from Breyers what used to be called ice cream to now what’s called a non dairy dessert? To Oscar Meyer changing the texture to it’s hot dogs to what they call a snappier texture, but we call it rubbery and no longer works for a dog food additive for us.
it just seems strange that all these super large companies are suddenly making strange moves like this in preparation of something and probably not good. Hopefully they are doing this for the greed and not a massive inflation.
