is the Great British Public really so innumerate this confuses it?

Yes.

Anf the only logical reason to sell 1-, 4- and 6-packs is to confuse people; given how long unopened orange juice will keep, there's no pressing need for an "I'll never finish that much" size.

Particularly since TESCO Online will no-longer deliver 132 cartons of OJ at a time (the most they'll do is 10xpack size; so if you're buying the not-cheapest variety a total of 110 cartons (10x1 + 10x4 + 10x6)).

I dunno - I often find myself paying more for a smaller size because I don't think we've got enough space to store the larger one conveniently.
