Value Pack

I saw this in my local supermarket the other day

In my local supermarket the other day, I saw these Milo bars. A ten-piece value pack; and what great value it is at only $2.77/100g (or $0.749 each).

Nestle Milo Bar, 10 pack. Price is $7.49.

 

But then I looked a little to my left, and saw this:

Nestle Milo Bar, 6 pack. Price is $4

It is exactly the same thing, except this packet has only six bars in it. But wait, at only $4.00 for the box, that works out to $2.50/100g (or $0.667 each). Surely this latter item is the true value pack!

Moral of the story: don’t trust the marketing!
