    I think that metrification has a lot to do with the "Wagon Wheels" syndrome of downsizing - something that the Brexit supporters at the British Weights and Measures Association have been excited about for a number of years. Instead of putting the prices up, the downsizing of the weight of the product meaning that the consumer gets a lot less for the same money. Notice that the smallest one is in plastic tin. However, I believe that the big tin on the left had a lot of "air" between the level of the sweets and the inside base of the tin lid when secure. When Watchdog investigated why tubes of Pringles had far less crisps than the tube could carry, the manufacturers made an excuse that it needs the space to put the crisps inside the tube while in the factory.

    Further to my previous post, I now realise that Tex actually meant "chocs" and nor "chicks" - I thought that as I mentioned Easter in my opening gambit, I thought that he was referring to "chicks" in that respect.

    (Chics does get a red line when written on my computer, and when I click on the alternative words, "chicks" is given, but not "chocs").

    Well ‘chicks’ or ‘women’ are getting smaller I’d say .. they’re under intense pressure to be slim , toned , tanned , perfect hair , perfect nails .. flat tummy ..

    Thank gawd I’m just a bloke who has to look at them

    I suppose that mentioning it as a cоck-up is too obvious.

    A Cadbury's employee tells me Creme Eggs are only produced between Christmas and March. But they're so unpleasant now that they don't use Dairy Milk any more that they're not worth the bother anyway...

    I could have sworn that they are all-year round things - they don't feel "seasonal" to me. It's like Kinder Surprise only being sold during those months.

    Or supermarkets only selling ordinary eggs (as in the "dip your soldiers in" kind) between Christmas and March.
