PSA: HJs Has Reduced The Size of The Angus Burgers, but Not The Price

I noticed a couple weeks ago, that HJs is now using tiny buns for the Angus burgers. They still cost a premium, but are no bigger than a bacon deluxe.
Idk if this is just a SA/franchise thing, or all stores? Perhaps someone can enlighten me on that.
But yeah, just be warned, they are now worse value.

      I want them to suffer reduced sales, so they can see the error of their ways

    Strangely, the meat patties are still the same size, so they overhang the bun. It just looks crap now.

      Could it just be they ran out the right buns on the day you visited?

      The 'meat' is way more costly than the bun. So doesn't make sense to reduce the bun size and not the meat. Its normally the other way round.

        Nah, it's been constant for a few weeks now, every day.

          You've been getting hungry jacks every day? hope you've been getting enough veggies and exercise as well.

      Less cheap carbs, more meat - it's a win from my eyes!

        But you're not getting more meat. The patty is the same.

    Could be a different bun supplier. But even if not, it's either food products get smaller or prices increase. Which would you prefer?

      They're still coming from the same supplier. I'm guessing someone higher up decided we're ordering small ones now.

    Coming from a worker, I can confirm that the brioche buns are smaller than they used to be. They used to actually be larger than the angus patty, but not anymore which is pretty sad. The brioche bun is basically the same size as the 4" buns.
