12.5kg - sorry wrong deal, I thought this was for potatoes



I just had an image of chocolate-covered roasties..oh god I'd probably eat them too :/.

The lids are the same size but the body tapers in towards a jelly mould like bottom.

They are a representation of life for many, you get less but pay more.

I know every time u buy one of these they shrink in size just like any chocolate bar too which are all shrinking .wish our waistline shrunk like these choc bars!!

Save your money and wait until the price drops nearer to xmas. Alternatively you can buy cheap blocks of chocolate for far less and just make your own chocolates.

Co-op offer is now 2/£10, 2/£9 was 1 week only.

Roses have shrunk this year by 100g (around about 9/10 chocolates) now 755g, 855g last year.

Two Morrisons stores for £8? I'll buy ten.

Which one is the biggest ?

When are manufacturers going to realise that it's not cool or clever to cheat and con consumers? It started with ever shrinking 'family' packs if cheese, going from 1lb (~550g) to 500g, then 450, 400, then 350 and now even 300g, whilst keeping the packaging the same size to trick us all...
Then Mars and snickers went down too, again, keeping pack sizes the same...
And for years now, they keep on shrinking the contents of these tubs...

They are literally cheating and tricking us, and we keep lapping it up...

Quality Street 350g carton for £2 at Tesco if of use to anyone.

Bargain price as past deals with higher weights are history. Fast disappearing at Chorlton branch.

Would you feel less 'cheated' 'tricked' or 'conned' if they just put the prices up year-on-year instead? I dunno about the cheese you refer to but these tubs of confectionery have been available at £4 - £5 each from most major supermarkets in the run up to Christmas for as many years as I can remember. The cost to manufacture, market and distribute them goes up annually ('inflation' and all that y'know?) so something has to give. We either pay more for the same quantity or get less for the same price.

I guess your argument is that the price rise is at least more transparent; right?

couldnt see any at my big store in Gloucester - are we sure this is a real offer?

One side of the argument is that they DENY that they shrink the sizes year on year.
We phoned Cadbury once to question/complain about it. Pointed out that the tubs have gone from 1.5 kg, down to 1kg and now even less. The person in customer services just flatly denied that has been the case - yet we have a 1.5kg tin sat at home!

Saw this at lunch today, definitely on

I picked up 2 celebration boxes (750g each 766g with wrappers) for 8 pounds in the Bolton Town Centre branch.

I can confirm this deal is on and I managed to buy some at the Cheltenham Hatherley store.

Just paid £9 for 2 at the Co-Op

I picked up 2 heros, 1 roses and 1 sweet shop faves. Never seen the sweetshop faves in a tin like that before or as part of an offer like this.

Finishes tomorrow so might grab another couple. Handy for gifts (if they last long enough)

I bought 2 boxes of celebrations. Heroes ain't like it used to be they got rid of bourneville, flake, fuse, timeout, picnic, dream and dairymilk nut and replaced it with creme egg, fudge and eclairs

Price wars not started yet, will be waiting, expecting a 2 for £7 deal to come along, may even get lucky with 2 for £6

if started on Thursday for 4 days, isn't this expired now!?

Correct this deal is finished

time for my strict chocolate only diet again ....

I totally agree something has to give their profits that still go up year on year. the consumer should not get the raw end of the deal, but he'll what we gonna do about it, stop buying them?

I can't speak for bilbob but that is my view. You pay more anyway so at least that way it wouldn't seem like they are trying to mask the price increase from those who don't realise they are getting less for their money. Of course there comes a tipping point where demand would drop if the price went up too much.

It's funny how this only just got hot today but the deal had actually ended by then.
Monday morning bargain hunting seems the time to submit your deals around here.

Some of the morrisons still are selling these ....

picked up two boxes, opened the sealed box and found 5 empty wrappers and 2 chocolates that didn't fit the wrappers sitting loose in the box.

Not sure why this is expired
