They were by the newly installed Christmas stock on the way in.

What I'm gonna do to combat the annual "Ever-decreasing tub-size paradigm" is buy a proper 2Kg metal tin then just top it up each Christmas with these supermarket loss-leader deals.

+ Manufacturers make a profit.
+ Supermarket makes a loss (on this line).
+ In future years my sprogs will have memories of a huuuuge metal tin of chocolates at Christmas that lasted for days, unlike the modern tiny plastic ones that are empty by the end of the Queen's Speech.

I agree entirely. Have you forgotten about the quality of the chocolate too. It's almost like candle wax now. Tastes like it too! Awful stuff. They should be ashamed about passing this *hit off as edible never mind as chocolate. Buyer beware!!

I knew that was the case for e.g. Cadbury's Creme Eggs that post-Mondelez don't use Dairy Milk.

Is there a similar issue here?

If so I'll just fill the aforementioned 2Kg tin with nicer individual chocolates from smaller suppliers.
Heat for the picture alone
Lol, good question, y no?
