Subject: Consumer Alert - M&M

From: Eric Steese <>

I have a couple of events coming up, so I went off to Costco -- largish
Warehous type consumer haven of the Northwest, expanding soon to a loca-
tion near you -- to restock my supply of M&M peanut style candies.  I bought
the big bag -- why not be a sport about it??  I know it is a big bag.  It
even has Extra Extra Large on the bag, and in case you did not get it yet,
it screams XXL at you as well.  Bring it home, and in putting it away I
discover that the XXL weighs 44.o ounces.  It's predecessor, in its yellow,
M&M bag, without the XXL in a giant font, weighs 48.0 ounces, for the same
price, of course.  Just in case you needed three pounds of peanut M&M's for
anything, now you need to buy two bags, and eat the other 40 ounces I guess.
