Ok ……I reckon we’re all pretty much aware that we have/are being screwed by the large multi nationals …financial institutions AND companies ….it’s all gone a bit bezerk …aggressive capitalism running rampant ….SCREW THE LITTLE MAN!!! …..and contrary to what we are being sold …it does NOT mean superior product and greater choice for the consumer.
I came across a fine example of this …one that is close to my heart …whilst having my Friday eve scroll through the posts of the blogs I am following.
I am following an interesting blog called ‘Planet Simon Sfarnell.wordpress.com’ I urge anyone reading this to take a look at his post ‘An Open Letter to Cadbury’s’
Now ….Easter is approaching and at this time of year the shops in Britain are flooded with a classic piece of British confectionary called the ‘Cadbury’s Creme Egg’ ……now the firm Cadbury which I believe was well over a hundred years old was bought out by ‘Kraft Foods’ a few years ago who have in turn changed to ‘Modalez International’ an American company.
But …..THEY HAVE CHANGED THE RECIPE!!!!! …..it’s an OUTRAGE!!!:D:D:D ….not only have the eggs shrunk considerably in recent years and the price gone up …but this year …the multipacks have been reduced from 6 to 5 eggs in a pack ( EVERYONE knows eggs are sold by the 1/2 dozen don’t they? ….DON’T THEY!!???)
Well apparantly not Modalez International …..and WORSE they have changed the recipe of a product very much part of the British culture!!!!
This is a fine example of large multinationals buying up smaller companies ….USING their good name and selling us back a cheap substandard product at a more expensive price …..RIP OFF!!!!
So as of yesterday I for one am boycotting this product ….and I am going to make little slips with messages to drop into the eggs as I pass them in local stores ….Simon is planning to start a Twitter Feed …..VIVRE REVOLUTION I say:D:D:D….and please feel free to join.
Now this might seem daft and trivial …but it’s an important message really ….like I’ve said before …it’s all ‘supply and demand’ these days isn’t it? ……about time we turned it around to ‘demand and supply’ AND IT COULD START WITH AN EGG!!!:D:D:D
And honestly you guys in the US and elsewhere …you ARE being sold short if you accept this product as is ….DEMAND authenticity ….they’re using the ‘label’ at least give us the proper product.
