It probably won't surprise anyone who's been paying attention over the last few years, but "shrinkflation" is a thing now, and despite the confusing name it means things you like getting smaller while prices do not.

According to Metro, the packet size will be shrinking by 7 per cent to 11 per cent, while the price will only go down by an average of 2.5 per cent.

Honestly, in these semi-apocalyptic times, we're almost grateful the price is going down at all.

We half expected them to cost £5 per egg post-Brexit (although to be fair, they still could).
