Shocked!!

For the first time in goodness knows how many years, I had a packet of crisps today. More than likely that previous packet was Smiths with the blue salty one.
What shocked me was the 25g of content, that's .88 of an oz. I don't recall how much they cost, but I wonder how its justified.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Shocked!!

Since posting, I've discovered that it was from a Walkers multi-pack. As you say not much in the pack except air and flavouring..

Maybe they do It for health reasons, Or to cut costs, They do look like a sorry pack though when you open them,

That's why I moved over to Seabrook, their 6 pack are 30g per individual pack & in my opinion taste better.

Ooo!! an increase of 5g dramatic weight increase to 1.05oz must get me some.
Have you any idea what 25 or 30 grams of raw potato looks like, you'd have trouble spotting it in a teaspoon.
