The better deal is the lower price per ounce, assuming you enjoy eating regular ones. You get the ratio by dividing price by weight.

1. In this case the smaller package is a better deal. Calculate and compare the numbers yourself.

2. Get the price per weight from the large size and multiply it by 16 oz.

You will get about $2.51
