Lets say a 7.5 oz rectangularish container. What would be the best fry to appear to give people a lot of fry but actually giving them the least? Are there any container shapes that can help optimize this skimping?

    I’m realizing this is basically the McDonald’s fry container. Narrow on the bottom, but wide at the top, fanning the fries out so the maximum amount are displayed. Low cut top to show the fries’ cleavage. The back is higher to support these fanned out fries. More of a stuffed envelope shape than a box, which takes up the same amount of space, visually, but fits fewer fries. The bottom is also rounded up to create the illusion of there being more room on the inside. Everything works together to deceive you.
