MUSHROOM SOUP 19oz
$1.69 UNIT PRICE
Notice that the unit price for both cans of soup is the same, therefore the shopper is not saving by buying the larger size. Comparing the unit price of similar products will insure that you get the best deal available without having to do the math. The unit price is the cost of the item per ounce, quart, gallon, pound, or any other unit of measure. Knowing the unit pricing keeps you from being fooled by the downsizing that food manufacturers have been doing lately...same size box with less product inside! Now go forth and compare!
