Inflation is an undeniable fact of life.
With each passing year, prices of goods sold in the market increase while people get less and less spending power. Their money’s value decreases, leading them to purchase fewer items with a certain amount compared to before. Even foods are affected by this economic phenomenon, with serving sizes getting smaller and smaller. An option would be to increase prices to avoid reducing the serving size—but this carries the risk of driving away customers.
One such example is the Pepper Salt Chicken Chops from Chatime. I’ve written about it in a triptych post two years ago, but I only got to try it again recently. Same story goes: one order of chicken chops, two cups of their annatto rice, and a tea drink. Notice that the lower picture has a smaller chop size compared to the upper one (which was taken in 2014).
Now, see what inflation does.
