In 2002, Nestle insisted on a smaller container to increase profits and so the standard US Half 1. Gallon (2 Quarts) container (1.89 L) was down sized to 1.75 Quarts (1.65 L) container. In May 2008, the 1.75 quart container was further down sized to 1.5 quarts (1.42 L). Other ice cream manufacturers followed the down sizing move.
Have you noticed those cheap banquet t.v.dinners are getting worse and worse? Or is it just me? They are getting bad really nasty tasting now its such cheap food and the portions get smaller and smaller.

It's like this with toilet paper. The double rolls are now the size of what single rolls used to be. The mega rolls are the size of what double rolls used to be. The cost of toilet paper has more than doubled.
