Chocolate Finger Fine

A biscuit company in Cambridge was fined £7,000 last week by a horrified magistrate who discovered they were selling 4.5inch chocolate fingers in.... gasp.... 6.7inch tins. The horror!

Imagine the poor schoolboy or homeworker who eagerly pulls a tin of chocolate fingers from the cupboard (labelled GIANT CHOCOLATE FINGERS, in fact) and opens the lid to reveal....... horribly miniaturised fingers... as if they have somehow shrunk in the packing process... oh, the criminality of it!

They deserved that £7,000 fine.... just think of all the disappointment they have caused country-wide. Tch.

    Were they not also fined for selling their biscuits (and tins) in inches???? If not, why not, eh........

    Probably the EU Gestapo haven't got onto the case yet; that will come next.

    But did the tin actually specify the size other than say Giant? I would have thought the company had a good case.

    Yes a very good case - especially if it's tin and contains chocolate fingers!!

    Word verification: slthifky - just how I'm feeling today!!
