Thats no reason to vote it cold - this is a deal website, not a debate on business management.

What happened?

Good value

What happened?



the company was purchased and it was profitable with a happy work force many worked for yeaqrs for them, they then looked at the value of the land (expensive in york) and found even tho they were making money they could make a huge instant profit from making all the staff redundant (over 400) and selling the land off for development

Many ppl never worked again and now the sight is a housing estate and those "oranges" are made abroad.

to be honest i very rarely vote cold on things I tend to make comment ie "I have seen this cheaper" or ask "why is this a good deal?" or ask for more details too mant ppl r very quick to vote cold on the most frivolus grounds, like i do not like that flavor or that store is not near me or even i can not afford one!! lol

I didnt realise about York otherwise I wouldnt have bought 20 from Argos after Christmas. I wont be buying them again though, same goes for anything from Cadbury or Kraft. Looks like my chocolate options are diminishing rapidly :roll:

Hope their will be some left in Romford - loving these!!

It is BUSINESS. They do not make oranges for your pleasure.

For the record, I am sure that MOST companies have been relocated. In fact, there are probably plenty of products you buy where the factory was relocated from abroad to England. Or, where the people lost the jobs in 1 county, but another English county has gained new roles.
Do you refuse to buy most manufactured products because we buy the raw materials cheap from poor countries and then make the item and keep the products for ourselves?? I don’t see any of us complaining about that.

In the grand scheme of things, picking on 1 particular company for doing something that they all do is harsh. Besides, do they owe the workers anything? The workers can leave the company, but the company cant do the same to them?

Thanks for that Mr. Terry.

Has anyone else noticed that the price of these the last few years have gone very expensive and they are only half the size they used to be?

wow lol

I just ate my last one from that awesome deal, won't be buying anymore tho bit sick of them now and the fact that we live a few miles away from the Kinnerton chocolate factory which has it's own shop selling their stuff off dead cheap!

I find Kinnerton's chocolate even worse than Terrys. I even thought of a slogan for them to match the dissapointment of when a child receives an easter egg of theirs:

'kinnel it's Kinnertons'

I wrote to them with the suggestion but as yet heard no reply.

and you demonstrate whats wrong with uk today, i am not picking on one company, and the comment about raw materials is the usual smoke screen argument, terry bought their raw materials from abroad!!! fool, do not try and dilute my comment with spin


fact a profitable company colsed down a factory that was making a profit it was pure greed

and when the unemployment rate rockets and we no longer make anything what then?

Absolutely agree. There can't be much that IS made in Britain anymore. Personally, I normally give and take what happens as a fact of life but the whole Cadbury issue has really hit home.

They are not that price in Lincoln Asda- think they were £2 each -so not everywhere !

Just bought 6 @ Asda, Middlebrook, Bolton, near all the easter eggs, still labelled on the shelf as £1 which is why there are loads left but they do go through the till @ 50p

Fool? Companies shed jobs ALL the time..and they are profitable companies :whistling:
I would not be crying about it years later if my company moved and I lost my job. Equally, my company would not be crying if I left as they can replace me.
As I said before, we dont complain when other companies move into our areas..just when they move out. It is the reverse of NIMBYISM. And you have been suckered... look at the bigger picture "fool" :oops:

What is the size of the pack? How many grams?

Nice story, but Kraft bought it in 1993 and it remained in production until 2005, I do believe it was 316 people and it has not yet been developed, it only got planning 2 weeks ago after years of trying! :thumbsup: Of course it is intended that the redevelopment will provide 2,500 jobs. It is seen as a huge redevelopment.

The factory was out of date and sales had dropped by 40%, it was not sustainable.
