I remember when then where that big, now it seems you hardly get any lol however, it would be interesting to see how much they were for the bigger tins back then compared to what we pay now Smiley Happy

You can still get a good deal on Quality Street though compared to Roses. I bought a 1.2kg tin for £7.50 off Amazon for Christmas.

Also wagon wheels aren't smaller, your hands just got bigger. Unless you're Donald Trump.

Thats why they are smaller,  the government have already asked sweet and chocolate manufacturers to make smaller portions.

And they are rubbing their hands having  complied but keeping prices the same. Nice little earner.

So were all supposed to be on a diet because of the obesity word.

Me, it makes no difference when im on a chocolte rush, I just eat more bars.
