I've been ripped off!

Last night I scarfed the bag of Dark Chocolate Peanut m&ms I scored at the grocery store the other day. My initial thought was that they weren't as "sexy" as I hoped. They were more like less-sweet m&ms than dark-n-delicious m&ms. But they were still good. So good, in fact, that I found myself wanting more after the bag was done. It seemed to disappear awfully fast. That's when I looked at the serving size. The bag was 1.50 oz as compared to a bag of regular peanut m&ms, which are 1.74. I want my extra .24 ounce, thank you!
I've been having major chocolate cravings lately, but I've tried to keep in control. I really need to find something that's rich and super-chocolatey that will satisfy my sweet tooth. I'm open to suggestions.

Hmm, have you given the Figmajigs a try? They're quite satisfying! I also love the Clif Nectar cocoa walnut bars....chocolately and dense. Worth a shot. :)

The source of my latest disappointment has been with Whitmans candy now sold as 12 ounces in the old 16 ounce box. The candies are smaller and the plastic spaces that hold these tiny portions have been enlarged.
Product deception has been rampent lately such as 6oz of yogurt instead of 8; 14 and 1/2 ounce cans down from 15 ounces, 34 ounces of coffee, 4 lbs of sugar and if you're looking at a gallon of paint , it is now 120 ounces though the manufactures says they need 8 ounces for paint colorant and mixing.
If product shrikage continues, groceries stores will have to become smaller instead of larger.
