Bigger Doesn't Always Mean Better Value

At the grocery store this afternoon, I decided to treat myself to '2 bite brownies.' A 600g bag sold for 6$. I forget the price of the 300g bag, but I do remember the unit cost for each--the 600g bag's unit cost was 1$ while the 300g bag's unit cost was .83$! Whopping difference! As it happened, today the 300g bags were reduced to 2 for 5$.

I'll let you do the math and just say that I can't believe people were actually buying the 600g bags....
