You can almost get a whole one in your mouth in one bite.
True & even worse, they now sell them WITHOUT a walnut on top & just market them as 'Whips' - world's gone mad!

Why would you choose to eat a WALNUT whip if you had a nut allergy....the nut sits there on the top...and yes I know that there used to be one buried in the whipped filling inside.....but you would have to be seriously dumb(I mean -GOLD medal standard dumb) to consider eating one if you had a nut allergy.

No, monkey hanger...it is all down to screwing the consumer....getting as much as possible for the minimum quality.

I know that there are some the believe these manufacturers are doing their bit to battle the obesity crisis.....all it means is that instead of eating one bar of whatever(and feeling you had satisfied your desire for s treat) you might now eat TWO.

Re: Vimto

just trying to be a bit sarcastic on the no win no fee society with my post. do not get me on about the obesity crisis or laziness crisis as i call it. never been a big sweet eater or pop drinker but love my chips and pies. only half a stone heavier now than when i left school but i imagine i walk backwards more than most walk forwards nowadays .
