It seems these days that when you buy a bag of potato chips, you open the bag to find that it’s about 60% air. Thanks, Lays, for giving me an enormous bag that could hold two gallons of something but actually holds about fifty medium-sized chips! And everything from peanut butter to Carmex lip balm seems to have clever packaging where the bottom is indented, giving the impression of a good-sized jar which turns out to be missing 10% of the volume of the cylinder.

So it was refreshing to open a can of peanuts today and notice that they were actually filled to the top.

Thank you, generic Kroger brand peanut manufacturer, for not cheating me out of my goodies.
