For a limited time, you can buy three delicious cups for the price of two! Wal-mart had an old box of the two-cups packages sitting right above for the same price (I guess they had just started the switch out), so I grabbed an old and new to see the difference. The old cups were 0.75oz each, and the new cups were just 0.7oz each. Sigh. I wondered if this was part of a devious scheme on the part of Reese's. Even though you are getting more in these new three-packs (40% more!) for the same price, once the promotion is over, and the packs go back down to two, you get 0.1oz less peanut butter goodness (6.7% less)."
