Rather than a 5 oz. rectangular bar, the new molds yield a square bar that's 1/4 to 1/2 ounces larger in size. Rest assured this change is not founded in the pulling of that old retail trick: making the product smaller but charging the same price with hopes that the consumer won't notice. At 5 oz., my bars were already 25% larger than the industry standard 4 oz. bars so yes, bigger is better because most bars will not see a price increase.
