ref Cheap new year eggs at Woolies, unethical?

Right after Xmas the geese (you and me) are feeling bloated from all the xmas fare. Then we have the corporate greedy bastards selling cut price easter eggs from as early as January to further promote a society of fat slobs. In the meanwhile, it is national news that obesity is at an all time high.
Are the corporates putting money before ethics? And if they are, should we just leave them sitting on their stock out of sheer principle?
I personally think they are taking the mick bigtime. With obesity in the news, the fact that they would even do a Easter chocolate promotion this early just means that they don't really care and just want our money :x

I work in retail - our Easter stock was in store at the start of November and I had to have it out on Christmas Eve.

The way head office works at our place is if people are going to buy it - it needs to be on the shelves. The only people you can blame for obesity etc is yourself (ok not you personally - but you get my drift.)

No-one is forcing anyone to buy any thing at all - it is just as easy to walk away.

Easter falls early this year (Mid March). though I agree it seems a bit soon.
#5
someone censor those tv shows about how miserable large people get, boot camp where they're shouted at, kids surviving in the jungle etc etc -- every time i switch the channels there's something on about it or some gross picture about the fat in their arteries or god help us, when they have to do a physical or strip (!), sheesh

fine if it's for public info but there's just too many on tv!

Never worked out how or why Easter moves.

I buy the eggs for the cups :)

You've obviously never purchased an Easter Egg if you think you can get fat on the meagre amount of chocolate they contain. :-)

Oh flipping dearly me, fat lazy slobs * will eat all the cheap easter eggs... OH discrimination if i ever heard it!! How can you assume it wont be the bulimics buying them in truck load so they can throw them up later on? (catch my drift)Sounds harsh? well maybe people should not stereotype then.
I better stand outside woolworths tomorrow with tape up blocking the expected * fatties* rushing. For gods sake i really thought maybe new year ,narrowminded opinionated people were a thing of the past,no wonder there is bullying about with ADULTS posting derogitory remarks! who do children learn from? Maybe you should think and take note of your comments and actions.
Besides.... smoking is a health hazzard kills yourself AND people around you!!! maybe we ought to stop shops stocking those hey!! I agree the fundimental issues here however what on earth gives people the right in turning a * deal* into a goading at * larger* people tread. You really ought to be ashamed of yourselves!!!
Each to there own,people are responsible for there own actions, if people want to eat and get fat, smoke and get cancer etc let them. END OF!

Yeah, I don't get that either. I just rely on other people to let me know when it is, haha. Only reason I end up knowing is because my dad will call me up and drag me round to my aunts to help the kids in the family with her little egg hunt thing.

I'm not really that into chocolate anyway, so what I get for easter usually lasts me til July/August and sometimes I even have to throw some away because it's going white :oops:

As a fat ******* myself I can confirm that I DON'T eat easter eggs. 52p 200g bars of choklid from Asda are MUCH better vfm:w00t:;-)

He's already been on autoroute!

Well, on the fat topic, I understand. This morning I woke up and weighed myself, I was 22 stone, but I got up and thought to myself - if I just work really hard and eat the right food - I can be three times that.

Some people can't help themselves when they see a bargain. It's these people whom Woolies are targetting. All those yummy eggs at just a quid? Who could resist?
I just think that retailers have a responsibility to save people from themselves where health and weight are concerned. It seems completely irresponsible to be promoting easter eggs straight after people have stuffed themselves at Christmas. It sends the message that we should just indulge all year round.
