    Bloody cheek when did that happen just bit into my daily Twix bar and it's got smaller after the 2nd bite it was gone
    They're always telling you on packets of food wow it's 20% bigger but they never let you know that a Twix bar is now 20% smaller

    Companies often reduce the size of the product and keep it at the same price, instead of increasing the cost.

    Topic bars are the worst ones, they were already small to begin with and are practically bite size now.

    Bags of crisps are the worst, you get f*ck all in them now, usually end up buying two bags.

    I quite agree. All during this cold snap things have been getting smaller. I feel cheated. You get used to a certain size, then all of sudden things start getting smaller. You can tell as soon as you pop it out of the wrapper and feel it between your fingers. My partner said that she can tell as soon as its in her mouth. It just doesn't last as long as it used to.

    Topics are my favoured snack chocolate bar. Perfectly small and there's a hazelnut in every bite. Or so they said in the t v adverts back in Thatchers day.

    Ice cream vans are the worst culprits. No more dipping your cone in hundreds and thousands, more like tens of thousands nowadays. And don't get me started on cones with a Cadburys Flake in the top. Call that a 99? 88 more like!
