    lol.. no it isn't! lol... it's simply saying "If a pacakge of hot dogs comes in 8, and we package our buns in 6.... then we KNOW... you'll need to buy more buns. THEREFORE... we can make more revenue" lol... if you want to NYAM all of the food when you don't need it then the GYM will start making revenue too lol

    True, but i was considering a bag of say cheetos , and they write on the bag the serving size, who is going to count how many were consumed? (and if you like it you can't stop eating it)

    Bashment Girl, that's another dilemma also. Why the hotdog people them package 8 hot dogs while the hotdog bread people package them in 6.

    It's same thing I'm trying to point out in the sausages. Why they put 7 in a tin? If you want an even amount of sausages, you will have to buy 2, or 4 or 6. You going to have some left over, which is not enough for a next sandwich or you're too full to eat it.

    This is a BRILLIANT point!

    The reason for this is the government telling them they have to label certain things on the package! Specifically nutrition INFO. Now if they tell you that the whole bag of chips is 400 calories... that's not as appealing as 100 cal pr 15 g... they know most people don't intend on doing the math.

    This is a good point. Maybe the producers weren't thinking. You can use the other 2 franks for rainy day.

    Weren't thinking? lol I would say a lot of thinking went into it. For the same points Bashment Girl pointed out. It's all about the money and forcing you to buy more.

    Yep true thing. I think also they need to know how they pack hamburger rolls. They do the same thing but putting 6 rolls in the bag and only have 4 pieces of meat to grill. Mek no sense.

    What am I to do with that one?

    If you are sharing up the sausages to your kids for lunch, you can't give them an even amount unless you use 2 tins of sausages to make 14.

    But why don't they put 6 sausages into the fool fool tin? It makes it easier to finish the whole tin without leaving 1 extra.

    If it's because the tin is round, why don't they make the tin flatter with 3 sausages side by side?

    Ahh Bwoy.. unu sooo slow...

    U get 2 extra sausages just incase u dont want to use it with the bread... like cut it up and cook it wid ketchup an stuff - cuz den u will jus have extra bread, and its very rare that you'll find anything else to do with the bread, thats y the sausage outnumber the bread...

    As for the tin sausage... u really supposed to mash it up with the fork.. and i think they were being nice by giving us 7 sausage fi wi money instead of 6.. the locals call it brawta... but now them might tek it back cuz we complaining...
    Still Searching... I'd rather be alone, than be unhappy.
