Uncle Barry’s Bar in Park Slope, New York, offers a deliciously controversial sweet and savory treat

When bar nuts and Chex Mix are no longer a thrill, pop over to Uncle Barry’s Bar in Park Slope, N.Y., for the ultimate sweet and savory treat: prosciutto-wrapped Twix bars.

This one-of-a-kind snack is a step up from the more common bacon-wrapped treat (like these Chocolate Bacon-Wrapped Dates and Bacon-Wrapped Pears), but it’s much easier to put together and just as tasty. Uncle Barry’s wraps a thinly sliced piece of prosciutto around a mini Twix bar and pops in a toothpick to hold it all together.

Owners Jake Trebach and Josh Ellis are the masterminds behind this new and improved candy bar. Trebach came up with the idea to wrap a Snickers bar with thinly sliced proscuitto, but Ellis insisted they use Twix instead for that extra crunch. And voilà! Heaven in a bite.

Ellis tells The Daily Meal that the prosciutto Twix has always been a hot menu item at $3 a pop (it's been around for a year, but Gothamist just recently featured it). And despite pork-dessert lovers, there has been a fair share of criticism. According to Ellis, "Some online comments say it’s yet another culinary abomination in a long line of hipster-influenced cuisine in Brooklyn. We find this funny, because getting worked up over a snack is pretty stupid."


19 Hidden Ways Companies Tricked Their Customers

In economics, the term shrinkflation could be characterized as a process in which a product shrinks in size or quantity or even gets its quality lowered, while the price of that product remains the same. In other words, it's making a certain product cost more without changing its actual price. Sounds unfair? Well, it does for a lot of people. Despite that, various well-known food and beverage companies have been using this strategy for years.

The trickiest thing about this practice is that the change is usually barely noticeable, so only the most attentive customers tend to notice it. And in the long run, even the smallest change ends up saving the company millions of dollars.

Without further ado, Bored Panda invites you to look through a few examples of products that at some point were affected by shrinkflation.

Last year, someone on Reddit noticed how a "Bigger Bag, More To Share" pack of Doritos actually had the same amount of chips as the regular size pack. "More air to share," someone joked in the comments.

them companies trying to make us turn our wallets upside down

you have to get it out first

It's five hundred grams - half a f*****g kilo - of f*****g corn chips. How much is enough? No one's making anyone turn their wallets upside for half a kilo of f*****g corn chips. Get a load of yourself.

They're not lying, it literally says "bigger bag".

This is actual false advertising because they made a pretty concrete claim by using the words "more to share".

Cant really say if they did make customers pay more cause these are two different flavors. Maybe the green bag use to contain less than the yellow one. Yes it could be ripping customers off, but this photo does not prove it.

Why am I downvoted for this? If you think differently, please inform me.

From what I remember of these when working in retail - the ones labelled as bigger were labelled as bigger than the smaller share bags (which are

250g). These two types of bags are not ever placed next to each other in planograms, and the one labelled bigger is usually cheaper than the non labelled larger bag.

when I see cons in the supermarket I move the items next to each other for everyone to see the difference.

By "not next to each other", I mean that one was with the snacks and one was with the lunch - opposite ends of the supermarket. Hope the rejects were put back afterwards.

It may just be me, who isn’t super big on Doritos, but YELLOW AND GREEN BAGS?! I’ve never seen those colors before. but it’s probably just me.

Yellow is my favourite - nacho cheese!

I need more air, thanks Doritos!

500g Doritos. is this UK or Australian version?

Well, they did say “bigger bag” not “more chips”.

Very observent! Good point!

The air in crisps bags is for a very good reason. It stops the crisps being crushed into crumbs. Basic logic.

They are not wrong you know. They literally said Bigger Bag, not More Chips.

They are not wrong you know, They literally said Bigger Bag, not More Chips.

I do not buy them but it says bigger bag.. not more product inside.

Well they did say it's a bigger *bag*

"Bigger bag". well, they aren't lying

It's a messed up behavior, but it's not air. It's nitrogen, an inert gas that keeps the chips fresh.

you have to watch some corporations like this. they want your money and will use all means to get it.

Stopped buying Doritos altogether bcz of this marketing LIE.

They would have to do some thing REALLY horrible to me personally , I mean . my doritos?

Waste of plastic. Won't buy Doritos.

Yea, more useless plastic waste. I hate corporations.

probs more money gone to waste too

In 2016, fans of Pringles started noticing how their beloved chips are now smaller. In addition, some noticed that the tube itself also shrunk, making it harder for some people to reach in. Despite that, the price stayed the same. “Is this Pringles can getting smaller or my arm getting fatter?” a consumer went on Twitter to express their concern. The company explained that the reason behind these changes was that manufacturing shifted from the USA to Malaysia. “The equipment we use in Malaysia is a bit different to our sister factory in the US … you’ll notice that both the chip and the can are a little smaller to fit with the production facility,” the company explained.

Back in 2016, Toblerone announced they were altering the iconic design of their UK bars by adding bigger gaps between the mounds, which meant that the bars were about to have 10% less chocolate for the same price. Apparently, the unfortunate change was due to an increase in the price of the ingredients. People weren't too happy about it, to say the least.

Two years later, the company decided to bring back the original shape. Sadly, the price of the bar had to be raised as well.

I think I'd rather pay more than receive an inferior product for the same price. Prices change. Quality doesn't have to. (Unless you are Costco's hot dog -price has stayed the same for decades.)

For a long time, the clear glass cookware brand Pyrex was known for making fireproof glassware. Ironically, a few years ago, the pans started exploding when they got too hot. Apparently, the manufacturer switched to a cheaper ingredient that strengthened the glass against being dropped but weakened it against thermal shock.

In other words, it's making a certain product cost more without changing its actual price. Sounds unfair? Well, it does for a lot of people. Despite that, various well-known food and beverage companies have been using this strategy for years.

The trickiest thing about this practice is that the change is usually barely noticeable, so only the most attentive customers tend to notice it. And in the long run, even the smallest change ends up saving the company millions of dollars.

Without further ado, Bored Panda invites you to look through a few examples of products that at some point were affected by shrinkflation.

Last year, someone on Reddit noticed how a "Bigger Bag, More To Share" pack of Doritos actually had the same amount of chips as the regular size pack. "More air to share," someone joked in the comments.

them companies trying to make us turn our wallets upside down

you have to get it out first

It's five hundred grams - half a f*****g kilo - of f*****g corn chips. How much is enough? No one's making anyone turn their wallets upside for half a kilo of f*****g corn chips. Get a load of yourself.

They're not lying, it literally says "bigger bag".

This is actual false advertising because they made a pretty concrete claim by using the words "more to share".

Cant really say if they did make customers pay more cause these are two different flavors. Maybe the green bag use to contain less than the yellow one. Yes it could be ripping customers off, but this photo does not prove it.

Why am I downvoted for this? If you think differently, please inform me.

From what I remember of these when working in retail - the ones labelled as bigger were labelled as bigger than the smaller share bags (which are

250g). These two types of bags are not ever placed next to each other in planograms, and the one labelled bigger is usually cheaper than the non labelled larger bag.

when I see cons in the supermarket I move the items next to each other for everyone to see the difference.

By "not next to each other", I mean that one was with the snacks and one was with the lunch - opposite ends of the supermarket. Hope the rejects were put back afterwards.

It may just be me, who isn’t super big on Doritos, but YELLOW AND GREEN BAGS?! I’ve never seen those colors before. but it’s probably just me.

Yellow is my favourite - nacho cheese!

I need more air, thanks Doritos!

500g Doritos. is this UK or Australian version?

Well, they did say “bigger bag” not “more chips”.

Very observent! Good point!

The air in crisps bags is for a very good reason. It stops the crisps being crushed into crumbs. Basic logic.

They are not wrong you know. They literally said Bigger Bag, not More Chips.

They are not wrong you know, They literally said Bigger Bag, not More Chips.

I do not buy them but it says bigger bag.. not more product inside.

Well they did say it's a bigger *bag*

"Bigger bag". well, they aren't lying

It's a messed up behavior, but it's not air. It's nitrogen, an inert gas that keeps the chips fresh.

you have to watch some corporations like this. they want your money and will use all means to get it.

Stopped buying Doritos altogether bcz of this marketing LIE.

They would have to do some thing REALLY horrible to me personally , I mean . my doritos?

Waste of plastic. Won't buy Doritos.

Yea, more useless plastic waste. I hate corporations.

probs more money gone to waste too

In 2016, fans of Pringles started noticing how their beloved chips are now smaller. In addition, some noticed that the tube itself also shrunk, making it harder for some people to reach in. Despite that, the price stayed the same. “Is this Pringles can getting smaller or my arm getting fatter?” a consumer went on Twitter to express their concern. The company explained that the reason behind these changes was that manufacturing shifted from the USA to Malaysia. “The equipment we use in Malaysia is a bit different to our sister factory in the US … you’ll notice that both the chip and the can are a little smaller to fit with the production facility,” the company explained.

Back in 2016, Toblerone announced they were altering the iconic design of their UK bars by adding bigger gaps between the mounds, which meant that the bars were about to have 10% less chocolate for the same price. Apparently, the unfortunate change was due to an increase in the price of the ingredients. People weren't too happy about it, to say the least.

Two years later, the company decided to bring back the original shape. Sadly, the price of the bar had to be raised as well.

I think I'd rather pay more than receive an inferior product for the same price. Prices change. Quality doesn't have to. (Unless you are Costco's hot dog -price has stayed the same for decades.)

For a long time, the clear glass cookware brand Pyrex was known for making fireproof glassware. Ironically, a few years ago, the pans started exploding when they got too hot. Apparently, the manufacturer switched to a cheaper ingredient that strengthened the glass against being dropped but weakened it against thermal shock.
