A friend - not me you understand - has found that his thin arrowroot biscuit from the same manufacrurer, will now slip straight into his mug whereas formerly it had to be broken in two. He thinks of Blue Ribands and Wagon wheels which have also shrunk over the years..
My friend is a peasant and he used to buy broken biscxuits on the cheap. Now he claims that some factories use too much packing, but his biscuit packets are in wafer thin paper and are often broken when he gets them.
He also read an article in the paper that some biscuits have now lost their taste and crumble immediately they are dunked , due to them using less fat and sugar.
What a moaning devil he is.
Does anyone really know what's going on?
the maunfactures of blue riband and indeed mars bars and all those sort of things do reduce the size of them over the years , this is so they can multi pack them for sale in supermarkets who demand a pack that can be sold for a certain price , the supermarkets wont pay any more so the manufactures reduce the size to compensate , biscuits we buy in a tin are they are better value , plus you get what you pay for with biscuits , i agree the cheap ones are all flour
Everything is shrinking, especially the money in our purses, so no surprise that biscuits in line with sweet bars are reducing but with the price going up.
Read Mallcum's answer and all I can say that biscuits that are cheaper are not the best quality. but as they are dunked they taste ok. as in cheap tea then just the dust off the floor, yuk.
\The o nly biscuits I like dunked are ginger ones ,espeically my home made ones.Yum.
I dunk when I eat Rich Tea but rarely with any others. Don't think the "lite" or "reduced sugar" ever taste the same.

We seem to find all kinds of packaged goods are now smaller than they used to be but no cheaper. It is price hiking by deceit.

. I know the manufacturors, are doing this for economy reasons, but apart from that I quite like the mini size, of all these chocolate bars.
I love the thin Cadburys ' Little Bars ', you can get now. Just enough to take the longing away. ,
and not enough to feel guilty about. Ellie
Cadbury`s chocolate eggs are getting smaller too
I`ve never dunked any biscuits in my life xxx
They seem to be cutting corners with eveyrthing today. My biggest 'beef' is with toilet rolls. The sheets are at least a third smaller and not to put too delicate a point on it, you need twice as many sheets, often doubled to complete 'the job'. Len.
Remember today is the start of the rest of your life. enjoy it
Broken biscuits, now that brings back a lovely memory.
My uncle worked for McVities and often he would visit
us and bring a box of assorted broken biscuits and shortbread.
Oh the delight in finding a whole chocolate digestive was so exciting!!
