Is it just me, or has a Large pizza gotten much smaller over the years?

I just ordered a large pizza from Pizza Hut just now, and I've noticed lately, that the Large kinda looks like how a medium used to look years back. I dunno if pizza's have been shrinking or if maybe it's just me growing up? (Ya know how everything looked so big when you were little)

Anyway, I'm pretty sure they're shrinking.. and I think it's a rip-off... 5.99 for a large isn't a good deal, it's more like a fair deal...

  • Everything is smaller. I notice the burritos from Taco Bell are more like taquitos compared to the size I remember from my childhood.

  • Yepp I noticed it the other day too. The small is literally 1 or 2 pieces bigger than a personal pan pizza now, the medium looks like the old small, and the large looks like the old medium. We used to get 2 medium pizzas for my family and have left overs now we can EASILY eat 2 larges between all of us.

  • haha that is hilarious (the taquito thing)
    but I totally agree with you, and I know my husband does as well. I know we are by no means fat people, and we can totally scarf down a large pizza between the two of us (which leaves none for our son-ooops!!) so 2 pizza's for a family of like 2 1/3?? Really?? No, they are definately making pizza's smaller so you have to buy more. And did you notice that some places have a new size? Xtra Large? What is that??

  • They are even making the plates smaller at the restaurants. ITS effecting everyone and everything.

  • Yes, it shrunk, that is why we order from the Ma and Pa pizza shop up the street. You really get more delicious pizza for your buck!!!

  • Everything is getting smaller. We ordered Dominos today, but the large looked pretty big to us. Even their new bread bowl pasta looked small in the pic, but I got really full halfway through it. Try Dominos next time.

  • I was actually gonna order Dominos but for whatever stupid reason the one near me wasn't delivering... even though they've delivered here before... maybe they lost employees or something..
