My morning cereal comes in boxes containing 7/8 ounce or 13/16 ounce of cereal. Why not one ounce? Based on the nutritional information on the individual boxes vs. the regular boxes, the individual servings are slightly smaller than regular servings.
When I was a kid the individual boxes had perforations on the front of the box and the waxed paper liner. The idea was that one could fold the front of the box and the liner back and eat the cereal right out of the box. No need to dirty a bowl or disposable cup. When and why was this discontinued?
