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

    I know they do small Creme Egg (Twist?) Bars in the UK all year round, but over here recently we had these:



    Quite tasty too!

    As for Wagon Wheels "Also, although the UK Wagon Wheel has barely shrunk, it is still noticeably smaller than the Australian equivalent. As of 2006 the diameter of the Australian version is measured at 88 mm which is 14 mm larger than the UK version, while the UK Wagon Wheel is notably thicker by 4 mm." - from wikipedia.

    Cadbury's is a rip off nowadays but the British people will pay almost anything for their 'weird' taste in chocolate.

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.
    Metrication shrunk the quantity of pick and mix or weighed out sweets from 4oz (a quarter) approximately 113g down to 100g. Trading standards officers nabbed market traders for weighing sweets with imperial scales or weights which cannot be legally calibrated.

    Many, many years ago I worked in a busy town fruit and veg store and our bosses were always getting done for ‘tampering’ with the weighing scales

    Is it just me? Or are they too sweet nowadays?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
