You may get excited when your favourite cereal is re-branded with fancy new packaging, but this is actually one of the smart ways companies disguise reduced contents. Coca Cola did this in 2019, reducing their bottles from 2 litres to 1.75 litres.

Expressions included in the study guide

  • Evil twin
