Tinned popcorn rip-off alert

For fans of the seasonal cans of caramel, cheese and buttered popcorn --
The brand sold at Wal-Mart, Houston Harvest, is selling a significantly smaller can for the same price as last year. Last year's can was 2lbs and 6 oz. this year's can is 1 lb, 14 oz.

I still bought some, but I did let them know that I noticed the change!!

Could they possibly have been losing money before? No, but they have to do things like this to make the more noticeable things, like $4 prescriptions and $1200 plasma TVs possible.

I've had a stick of Land-O-Lakes on my arm for a week now. Curbs the cravings.

I have heard that KMart is selling the larger size.
I guess if you're shopping for popcorn, beware of the size trick and check to make sure you're getting the full 2lbs, 6 oz.
