Supermarket shopping 101 dictates that if you buy items in smaller quantities, you'll usually pay a premium. But I've rarely seen an example as extreme as this. 250 grams of Home Brand reduced-fat cheese? $3.69. 500 grams of the same cheese? $3.79.
Woolworths' online shopping site lists the 500 gram block for $4.82, so this may have been an odd in-store pricing error. Either way, it's a reminder to carefully check the unit pricing before buying an item available in different sizes. And if you want a small quantity of cheese, buy it from the deli.
