The “New & Improved!” box on the right contains one ounce less cereal than the box on the left. It also contains 3% less of my “daily whole grain needs” (down to 87% from 90%) and correspondingly contains 42g of whole grains compared to the 45g in the left hand box.
Now, if 45g is 90%, then 42g OUGHT to be 84%, if we use math.
Shredded Oats are still my favorite breakfast cereal, but I do question the use of the adjective “improved” in this case. Maybe it tastes better? I can’t tell.
UPDATE: I have discovered the improvement! The new smaller box actually fits on the shelf in the cupboard! The old box only fit if I jammed it in on a slant.
