Thread: After Eights ain't what they used to be.

  1. #1

    Default After Eights ain't what they used to be.

    Anyone notice how friggin small they've become?

    I was in the shop the other day and saw a box, which said 50% extra free. I thought I can't pass that up and bought them.

    I was pretty gutted and quite surprised when I opened the box to discover how tiny they are compared to how they used to be.

    I had no idea they'd got smaller. I'm a big fan but don't buy them these days as I tend to just work my way though the whole box in a very short time!

    There's a whole website devoted to them:

    Nestlé AFTER EIGHT

    (I'm gonna be terribly pedantic now: you don't need the apostrophe in 'Eights'. Its a plural not a possessive.

    You can kick me for being a smartarse if you want )

    I think they may be smaller, but I'm not sure. Anyone else think so?

    They are still far too scrumptious though!

    Lots of packaging in these, with each chocolate so eloquently and individualy wrapped. Hope you recycle it all folks, lol.

    i had a box just recently and they did not taste as good as id remembered,not sure if they where smaller than they once where.

    At least they are still individually wrapped.
    Packaging ive always loved.



    Just the right colour.

    they dont seem to taste as good either.could not remember if they where smaller.
    But def not taste as good.

    Why do they have to change things when they where fine as they where.
