What A Rip-Off

When I was a kid our class went on a big trip and we visited the Toblerone factory in Bern Switzerland. So cool. And the end of the tour they took us to the room with broken pieces of the bar in tubs and let us dig in and fill the goody bags they gave us. It was as close to being in Willy Wonka's Choclate Factory that I ever came. And now THIS bullshit.

A decision to space out the distinctive triangular chocolate chunks in two Toblerone bars sold in the UK has upset fans who say that they do mind the gap.
The product's makers, US-based Mondelez International, said it had changed the design to reduce the weight of what were 400g and 170g bars.

Some consumers have described the move as "the wrong decision" and said the bigger spaces looked "stupid".

Mondelez said the move was down to a rise in the cost of ingredients.

Well, just another thing going down the tubes. Everyone here at work is basically in a state of shock right now, need time to finally realize we are governed by idiots and morally bankrupt individuals. And half of us in the US are evidently too stupid to know what's good for them. Basically, the man who is supported by nazis and the KKK is now the president, with both house and senate run by dimwits. I think trying to run a woman (who was also burdened with a lot of baggage) right after a black president was just too much for white males down here. Tis an ill wind.
