But, yes, back when I ate meat I did try things like eating crickets
(it kinda felt like eating sand, though a chocolate-covered cricket
was like eating a Kit Kat.
I tried these protein bars awhile back that are made from cricket flower,
they were actually pretty good. These days they are advertising that they're made with "Acheta Protein" which I guess sounds less gross that "made from crickets".
"Acheta is a genus of crickets. It most notably contains the house cricket."

I've noticed that canned soup is now in smaller cans. Used to be
545ml, now down to 515ml.
I bought some bottled apple juice for the first time in over 6
months.. and notice that it tastes quite watered-down.
Yeah, that's part of this whole shrink-flation trend that seems to be happening. Give the customer the exact same packaging but with less product in it and keep charging them the same price.
I noticed that with the toothpaste I use, I used to buy the big 170ml tubes
of toothpaste, but they discontinued those in favour of smaller tubes. My
old ones used to be 144ml, they're now 136ml. Did the price drop? No, in fact it's gone up.
