Missing Candy

I went to the store to do some grocery shopping. There was a bag that caught my eye advertising 155 pieces of assorted candy goodness. That's a lot of candy - so I bought the bag.

When I got home, the first thing I did was sort and count my loot. Here's my candy distribution:
Hershey's Milk Chocolate        20
Jolly Rancher Hard Candy Stix 27
Jolly Rancher Double Blasts 46
KitKat Crisp Wafers 20
Twizzlers Mini-Bars 20
Notice anything strange here? The total is only 133 pieces! That's 22 pieces or almost 15% less than the advertised 155 pieces! Now why would the Hershey's Company advertise such a specific number, but deliver 15% less than promised? Is this an innocent packaging mistake or are they purposely cheating all of their customers thinking no one is going to bother counting their candy?

Do any of those candies say something like "serving size 2 pieces" ?
