Regular DC spaghetti is 16oz a box, as is every other DC pasta in the store. Why is WW light?

  1. Spend a little more time with the fine print in the pasta aisle. Virtually all the brands pack less/charge more for whole wheat/multigrain/"healthy" blend types of pasta. Some even do it for the fancier shapes of ordinary white flour pasta. The box of fancy shapes looks regular size but contains only 13-14 oz.
