13 January 2015

Quote of the day

From The Guardian (here):
Monday 12 January 2015 will go down in confectionary history as a bad day. A hurtful day.
The day when it was revealed that Cadbury’s Creme Eggs have changed forever.
No longer shall the egg shell be made from delicious Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate. It will instead be made from disgusting, foul, vomit-inducing “standard cocoa mix chocolate”.
“It’s no longer Dairy Milk. It is similar, but not exactly Dairy Milk,” said a spokesman for Cadbury, which since 2010 has been owned by the US giant Kraft, with a flippancy almost as hard to stomach as this new, Frankenstein’s monster of an egg is bound to be.
The spokesman said the new chocolate had been tested on “consumers” – industry shorthand for “idiots”, clearly – and had been “found to be the best one for Creme Egg”.
Me?  I never saw the attraction.  I'm a straight Cadbury's buttons fan.
