Giant's going upscale
I bought ramen noodles today - I ate out at lunch and just wanted something simple for dinner. Well, you can't buy individual packages of ramen noodles anymore. I had to buy a six-pack. Here's the kicker: it was $1.50! Now buying individual packages of ramen used to be 10-15 cents each. At the multi-pack price, it ends up being 25 cents each. PLUS there's more packaging, since they shrinkwrap the six packages together. So let's summarize: more expensive, less convenient, and bad for the environment. I'm disappointed, Giant, and your coupon for free cookies won't assuage my feelings.
