Duplicitous Packaging!

So I was in the World Market store and saw this package of Jordan almonds. Yum, I thought, it had been a long time since I've had these. In Italy, they use these (typically white ones), as give-aways at weddings, wrapped up in gauze.

I bought it and took it home and only after I got to the bottom of the package did I notice that there was a big funnel, unnoticed until you turn the package over, that severely cuts down the number of actual Jordan almonds in the box. Is there any reason for such a big dent if not to make you think you're buying more almonds than there actually are in the package?

I sent this photo to Consumer Reports for their Selling It page. Who knows? They may publish it!

I'm with you. It's dishonest practice and cheatin the customer. Besides which, it's a waste of packaging material and transportation space.
I hope somebody does look into it. I always check out the entire package before I buy stuff anymore. Not only do I want what is coming to me, I want to be throwing out only what I have to.
