Cadbury's, Hershey's, Mars & Nestle?

Post by fredwilliams » December 15, 2017, 8:23 pm

Is it just me or are they in shorter supply suddenly?

Call me an ol' snob, but I can no more get excited about the United range anymore than I have ever been about Beng Beng.

Even though my son-in-law works for Hershey in Canada, I do not like these brands very much and I love to eat chocolate. Mostly, I eat Belgian, Swiss or German dark chocolate. Cadbury's has a burnt dark chocolate with almonds that is okay although it is on the sweet side

Wasn't there some sort of health scare about these brands in Thailand a couple of months ago? perhaps they have had a "quiet" recall which has caused the shortage

"the amounts of the two toxic substances detected are within the set standards,"

pretty difficult when further down the article it states that "THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO SET STANDARDS IN THAILAND" [-X :evil:
