    I’m surprised that the canning company didn’t reduce the can to 18 ounces!

    Orange juice has been reduced from 64 to 59 ounces, and peanut butter has been reduced by many companies from 18 ounces to 16.3 ounces.
    I feel that when a company resizes their containers, they should just follow the liquor manufacturers and make all of their sizes an even metric number to conform with the rest of the world.
    Wine and spirits bottles are 750 ml, 1 liter, 1.5 liters (wine) or 1.75 liters (spirits). Jug wine is sold in 3 or 4-liter jugs. Box wines are usually 3 or 5 liters (I work for PA’s state-owned/operated liquor stores).
    Soda pop is sold in both metric (1, 2 & 3 liters) and U.S. sizes (12 & 20 oz.) as well.

    Well said, Greek Guy. (smile). I wonder how mr. Loser guy has managed to hang on to his job. What does he do in that office, anyway?

    He can’t help it. He was ‘born’ that way.

    @ the two “metric” people above……i used to go by centemeters and millimeters, but they grew legs and ran up a tree…

    Oh it’s coming. Just like the old 7 ounce can of tuna that went to 6 ounces then down to 5 ounces, can (no pun intended) it go to 4? Do I hear 4.75?, 4.5?, 4.29??

    Omigod!
    In Mexico, even though it’s the metric system in effect, the consumer really has to pay attention! It took me about a year to realize that when buying Scotch Whisky I had to look at the label! One might think one is getting a bargain until one realizes that the bottle might contain only 700ml instead of 750ml!!!

    And various soft drinks might be bottled as 400ml instead of 500ml (1/2L). Or 600ml.
    .
    I’ve even purchased tequila in 695ml bottles and 990ml bottles (thinking the latter was a liter) and rum in 375ml bottles.
    .
    The consumer must always be cautious here.

    Off the record, the chili will be a little more tastier with a little more tomatoes.

    Tomatoes are not, and never will be, a part of my recipe for chili.

    And what he obviously doesn’t understand about cooking is that cooking is akin to art, in that there’s room for interpretation, latitude for a little more of this, a little less of that, to taste. It’s only in baking, which is more like a chemistry equation, where precise measurements are more critical.
