this happens with many items, poundland are meant to go to the manufacturer and ask them to make them their product for a certain price, so some shrink, not sure if some would also grow.
Dealz can be confusing as you have no reference at hand. If you go to tesco and YR brown sauce is supposedly on offer you can easily cross reference to tesco own brand, HP sauce etc, usually at least 4 other types. While in dealz it is often just the one.
The mulitpack bars usually have the overall weight on them, I would want it to get 150g or more for €1.50

Can of Heinz beans for example made for the beans smaller that the usual can
the heinz beans are 3x200g, so the same size as the small ones in tesco, which are 3x200g for 2.60. So dealz is a good bit cheaper, if you would be buying that size in tesco. I see many people buying those small pots (I would not dream of buying branded beans let alone the small pots!)
The 12pack of weetabix is 1.50, in tesco it is 2.39, the 72 & 48 packs in tesco work out pretty much the same price per weetabix as dealz. They could well be shrunken ones though.
