Our iTeam survey department reported the new take-out container: "If I could do something like a percentage, I would say it would be 25 to 2,500 smaller.
Gus tulfry was crying when he noticed a change in his usual Chinese takeout order.
The food was good, he said, but the containers were very different.
"They are plastic!
The local man said that after eating the take-out from the aluminum container for a lifetime, it was clearly still shocked. Mr.
Turfrye immediately contacted the SP iTeam Investigation Department, which arrived at his Brightondale-
Rosemhampton townhouse near Vista restaurant-Pointe.
The discovery was confirmed by reporter Leo Jefferson.
"The container is really plastic.
"We noticed this right away because we are good at observing," he said . ".
The container is described as a rectangle with a black bottom and a clear plastic cover.
"At first I thought, 'Cool! ’ ” said Mr. Turfrye, 38.
"I mean, they're microwave and it looks like it's hard to use for months.
However, it turns out that the warmth of this man's frugality is fleeting.
"I stopped eating soon," he said . "“I had to —
I ran out of food.
Something went wrong.
There is not so much sweet and sour pork with a fork.
Overall, there are fewer people in chow mein.
No leftovers left except Lucky cookies, which is unfortunate.
"It was a good thing that I was sitting there because it hit me all at once," Mr.
Turfrye said: "The new plastic container is smaller than the old aluminum container!
"SP iTeam will start writing this story soon.
They found an old rectangular aluminum takeaway in the same restaurant and compared it to the new plastic container.
At first glance, there seems to be no big difference.
Just then, iTeam was inspired, just like its awards --
Award winning series, how much cream do you have in your cream?
"We decided to make a measurement," the reporter said . "
They filled each container with water.
The old aluminum held 2. 5 cups.
Plastic, only 2 cups.
"Half a cup is missing," Jefferson said . ".
"If I could do things like percentages, I would say it would be 25 to 2,500 smaller.
According to experts, the container size has been getting smaller in a process known as "shrink flation.
There is less toilet paper on a roll of paper.
However, prices remain the same or rise.
"According to the United StatesK.
According to the British National Bureau of Statistics, in 2012 to 2,529 years, 2017 kinds of products on supermarket shelves have declined in size or weight . "
According to a recent article by The Economist, Nigel Stirling, an expert in weight and measurement, said in a trustworthy British accent.
For consumers like Gus Turfrye, the trend began decades ago.
"When I was a kid, we had a chocolate bar called Cuban lunch.
It's about 4 inch thick. you need a friend to help you move. ”Mr.
Turfrye claimed that the delicious candy was getting smaller and smaller until it mysteriously disappeared one day.
Similarly, it is not clear whether Cuban lunch has been eaten. Mr.
Turfrye plans to launch a petition to bring back large aluminum containers.
"But now I'm too weak to get off the couch.
"SP iTeam said it was unable to contact the restaurant concerned.
"We're going to close the investigation," Jefferson said . " He left for lunch soon.
Later in the day, a new plastic container was seen in the refrigerator in the newsroom.
"It's not crispy ginger beef, you can't prove it," Jefferson said, waving chopsticks . ".
