    I think their aim is to get you to buy more, thus spending more money on their products, rather than to eat less

    I loved the chocolate limes that Tesco sold when I was at uni, but in my third year they changed the recipe and they've never been the same since

    They are savoury but pot noodles just aren't anywhere near as nice!

    This! They used to be so delicious! Now they're a bit average.

    I used to have Choclik all the time years ago.
    Now you can't find it anywhere.

    I ordered some off The Happy Sweet Shop and it just wasn't the same.
    Annoying, as I bought a kilo of it, nomnomnom.

    Definitely Mars Bars, they’re rather rubbish now since they changed the recipe a few years ago. I remember when they used to go rock solid in the fridge, they made great murder weapons... :evilbanana: (sorry, I just wanted an excuse to use that emoticon!)

    It sucks how most things have gotten smaller these days. Creme eggs especially! When will they learn that it doesn’t make me eat les chocolate, I just go and get another one!

    Although I swear some people exaggerate the sizes of sweets in the past, my mum for example:

    “I remember when wagon wheels were the size of bicycle wheels!!!” :rolleyes:

    You have a point!

    But I always thought that it had something to do with the government tackling the so-called 'obesity pandemic.'

    Could be - in which case it kind of backfires, because secretly the companies know that many people will just buy two of the things rather than one!

    Twix tastes terrible now.

    It almost tastes like it's been left out in the sun for a week, and somehow managed not to melt.

    Does anyone else really hate the fact they changed the shape of the smarties tube? I used to love just sitting making the lid pop and now you cant do it
