I don't get headline writers sometimes.
The BBC is going with 'Toblerone triangle change upsets fans'
when actually it's more like 'people pissed there's less food in the same priced wrapper'.

I mean changing the spacing of the triangles isn't a minor change, you get a lot less internal food volume, but the wrapper gets to stay about the same.
It's the food manufacturers cheating, again
only sometimes people notice.

granted they'll have to label the weight correctly, but the only reason to pull shit like this is if they hope buyers won't notice until after they've spent the money.
This time they've noticed, but the headline is about the annoyance, not 'capitalism keeps shrinking your foods'
