Appalling Scenes with Cadbury's Heroes

Nothing says Christmas better than fulminating over the injustice nestled in our sweetie tins. Puncturing the season of goodwill this year is Cadbury (AKA Kraft) and their shortchanging fans of their Heroes (sans Miniature) range. This year Santa delivered us two tins of diminutive iterations of their popular chocolates. And lo, the scandal we have seen in previous years is back. See for yourself:

I haven't seen gross disparities like these since looking at the UK's income inequality figures. It's an outrage.  n = 68 for the first tin, and 69 for the second. Terrible! And there is a close(ish) resemblance between the two. Measly numbers for Twirls, over generosity - if that's the right phrase - with the Fudge, Creme Egg, Dairy Milk. The evidence is right there, staring you in the face.

We must step up the campaign until justice wins. Victory is nothing less than parity in every single tin of Heroes, Celebrations, Roses, and Quality Street. What have you got to lose? Join in and take the fight to Big Confectionery! Hashtags in previous years were #FairHeroes, #FairCelebrations, etc.

H/T to @ravisubbie for kicking off this important struggle.

Meh, I've always preferred fudge.

Does this make me bourgeois?
