There’s an old joke that goes something like this: two women are having lunch in a restaurant they haven’t been to before. As they’re finishing up their meal, one says to the other, “You know, the food here is really terrible!” To which her companion snaps back, “I’ll say! And such small portions, too!” It’s so true, isn’t it? No matter what we’re buying, we’re always looking for a good value – even if it’s food that isn’t very good…or very good for you.
Getting more for your money is generally a good thing, and we’ve been conditioned to look for the best value in everything we buy – from laptops to laundry soap. But if getting more for your money means getting more fat, more sugar and more calories, that can spell trouble for your waistline.
