Beef patties, smaller?

Is it just me, or does it to seem to you that beef patties are shrinking? They seem to be much smaller than I remember them growing up as a child. Then again, it could be simply because my hands and my appetite have gotten much bigger over the years.

Yes Gussie,the beef patties are indeed smaller.It does not have anything to do with your hands,just about everything is getting smaller or less, but at the same time prices are outrageous and exorbitantly high.Whenever you have time, just check out the amount of cereal in a box or the amount of detergent in a small or medium sized box.The manufacturers are selling less for much more.RESPECT STAR!!

lol the last time I bought a juicy beef patty it costed $130 and it was cold. It looked like the same size to me though.

well that was at NMIA so I guess it's understandable.

@ ESTEBAN
You see it! I was beginning to wonder if this was just another one of my unfounded conspiracy theories.

@ ADRIAN
Its either you’re a time traveller from the future where patties cost $130 or we need to report NMIA to Consumer Affairs Commission immediately.

The ones we get here in Grand Cayman seem ok to me... Dunno bout in Jamaica. I bought some when I was there in June but didn't note any difference...

@ Adrian: What is NMIA? North Miami?

I consider myself a patty connoisseur and I've noticed a change. Not so much overnight, but over the years they have surely gotten smaller.

@MB: NMIA = Norman Manley International Airport
