What is This?

PhotoGrid_1514658178637 (640x484)

Now I am finally on the mend, I can muster up the energy to say my piece about something which bothered me earlier this month.

Seriously, what is this? An Oreo milk bar in what is supposed to be a British chocolate maker pack? I knew it was a huge mistake selling Cadbury’s to Mondelez International (formerly Kraft). Their promises to keep this brand British were empty, and amongst other things, this just proves my point. How dare they take out Fudge for this nonsense?

I for one HATE Oreo. It is absolutely disgusting, and so is Hershey’s. Hence the reason when I am in the US, I hope and pray my lovely friends will send British chocolate to me, and never eat chocolate unless they do. It is also the reason I continue to send British chocolate to my beloved best friend who moved to the US some time ago.

Cadbury’s no longer taste the same as it used to. It’s oily, and ‘bitty’ since Mondelez International (formerly Kraft) took over. They have managed to ruin a great product, which is generally what happens when one company has a huge monopoly.

‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ comes to mind.

Now it is broke, they need to fix it back to how it was.

When You Send a Friend a Package…

…and it turns up later than expected like this.

Completely empty.

When You Send a Friend a Package...

The note on the bag added insult to injury, as it states they regret the ‘damage’ to the mail. What damage?! All the frigging contents were taken!

I cannot begin to stress how annoyed I am about this. I mean, really? I know life can be hard at times, but this takes the biscuit.

The likelihood of the person(s) who stole the contents to be reading this is very slim, but I will say this anyway, “You’re a flipping knob. My friend was looking forward to her creams and British chocolates. Next time, rather than stealing, write to me at the return address at the back of the package. You never know, I may actually send you some.”
