Toblerone is being redesigned for the UK market; its Alpine peaks are being eroded to compensate for the rising cost of ingredients, and a lighter bar is being sold for the same price.

The 400g bar is now a 360g bar and instead of 15 peaks it boasts only 11. This has caused much gnashing of teeth (and not in a good way).

But - and here's the bad news - there could be more of it to come.

According to the consumer organisation Which? several brands were guilty of this "sneaky way of increasing prices" last year. Tropicana reduced the size of its Orange and Raspberry juice by 15%, packets of McVitie's Digestive dark chocolate biscuits lost around 10% in weight, and Princes is putting less mackerel in each of its tins.

This is truly an outrage. Why is the world really coming to shit this year?

We were all TOLD the price of food would increase after Brexit, but the people are too stupid to have listened.

This is terrible. I don't buy Toblerone though but wife buys a lot when they're on offer to send in her boxes to Philippines. Am not keen on it myself.

I bought one a few days ago before I heard the news and noticed it. Would also have preferred smaller bars like many are saying sleep.gif

Shut up and stop reading racist connotations in to my posts. My wife isn't white so how the hell can I be racist? I just love white chocolate. Always liked Milky Bar as a kid.

They're everywhere, in most supermarkets, small and big ones. Aren't there dark ones now too? Never tried those though.

I don't think most of them ever will.

The phrase 'wake up sheeple' really comes to mind now, some people just blindly believe whatever the conservative media tabloids tell them which is so sad.
