This is written by a poster from Taste of Home Bulletin Board:

My husband got a memo last week that the size of cake mixes are going from 18.25 to 15.25 and the prices would be going up.

3 oz is a big difference. So I went to Winco and they had Pillsbury for 87¢ a box and Betty Crocker was 99¢ on some of their flavors. They also had some of the "new boxes" in and they are about 1/2" shorter and the oil and water has been changed, also the baking time is cut down. Higher price.

It makes me mad, because I have books of recipes that use cake mixes as a base and now they will be off. I have family recipes that also won't turn out as good unless I figure out how to cut the liquids.

Most of the boxes were good into next year so I stocked up at least to get me thru the Holidays, were I need things to turn out great.

So be on the lookout SOON for the bigger boxes before they are gone, and this way you won't be caught wondering what happened to your favorite recipe when it doesn't turn out. It makes me mad when they change sizes, but this with 3oz is a big difference. They are also cutting down the size in some chili's, but that doen't matter like in baking.
