I boycotted them when they fucked up the shape of it. Couldn't give a fuck if they're slitting the nougat animal's throats in accordance with The Great White Whale's will or not, make the fucking thing the proper shape again.

I decided to see if their Twitter was as much of a shitstorm over this nontroversy as I thought it might be, but they had an anime picture pinned and I don't understand. Everything's so weird and strange and odd and I just want to go back a few years to when it wasn't like that.
I saw a shooting star earlier tonight and all I wished for was that it had hit me.

According to another article on it they've stopped using alcohol to clean the machinery blades and other factory equipment so the chocolate doesn't come into contact with it and they've also got Shackletons coming in regularly to certify it's still halal.

I'm pretty sure all Eskimos are ruddy, that sort of skin tone comes with the territory of living there.
|>>|| No. 62233
my brother has a eskimo girlfriend which has led my dad to discover what halal is and come out as against it. now there are varying degrees of meat at family occasions, and the topic is swept under the carpet
"I'm not racist i just think it's wrong what they do to animals"
that's fine but if you're going to eat cheap meat from tesco it comes across a bit daft. also he still goes to mcdonalds and other restaurants that all clearly serve halal.
i haven't told him that most places are halal, i'm waiting for the halal meat inside him to slowly penetrate the cells of his body and convert him to the correct religion

Is it really just us who have ended up with gappy toblerone?
>ALSO HE STILL GOES TO MCDONALDS AND OTHER RESTAURANTS THAT ALL CLEARLY SERVE HALAL.
Maccies ain't halal last I heard. It's not hard to avoid unless you're buying shitty takeaway food and even then there's always a Chinese open.
>MY BROTHER HAS A ESKIMO GIRLFRIEND
Did he convert or have her cousins already melted her face off?

Chinese takeaway is just various meat and vegetables dunked in assortments of msg ridden slime.

You need to change restaurants if that is what you think dim sum is. Or Salt and Pepper Chicken, for that matter.
I bet you're the type of cunt who orders an omelette from the chinese.

Could not agree more.
Also, how much meat is there in a Toblerone anyway?

we've all converted now due to pc gone mad, no one in the family wanted to offend

bloody hell, i went and bought one earlier tonight didn't I. Am i inadvertently supporting The Great Whale Hunti john and friends now? do i take it back or is the damage already done? will it taste like curry?

you have to un-halal it. do something completely haram, like shoving it so far up a pig's arse it gets blood on it.

has anyone actually tried launching some form of patriotic confectionary since the refrendum?
|>>|| No. 62304
I'd call it something like 'will of the people' or 'taking back control'. Proper British sweets.
Thinking about it, Asda launched their BREXIT lollies relatively recently. I guess that's reflective of their status as the supermarket for the Untermensch.
|>>|| No. 62307
On an unduly sober note for /IQ/, Tesco are making a big play to dominate the retail market in the event of a no-deal scenario. Their new Jack's sub-brand is intended to compete with Aldi and Lidl, but with 80% of their products made in Britain. There are union flags all over the place, so it feels a bit like doing your weekly shop at a BNP rally. It's breathtakingly cynical, even by the standards of Tesco.
|>>|| No. 62310
>BUT WITH 80% OF THEIR PRODUCTS MADE IN BRITAIN.
I'm quite sure Aldi could say the same, the meat and veg is all British, and most of the rest of it is made in factories here or Ireland too. They saw Brexit a mile off and will continue to be competitive post brexocalypse.
I suspect Jack's is the shop that'll end up in the currently empty retail unit on my estate, that used to be Aldi until they built a bigger one down the way. Like you, I am not looking forward to the aesthetic experience.
|>>|| No. 62312
To be fair, that's not as bad as I was imagining. That just looks like a 90s Somerfield's.
|>>|| No. 62313
Somerfield. Somerfing different.
They don't make supermarket jingles like that any more. I believe Morrisons have ditched 'more reasons to shop at more-ee-sons' and Asda no longer have the middle aged woman slapping the arse pocket on her jeans whilst declaring 'that's Asda price'.
|>>|| No. 62314
>ASDA NO LONGER HAVE THE MIDDLE AGED WOMAN SLAPPING THE ARSE POCKET ON HER JEANS WHILST DECLARING 'THAT'S ASDA PRICE'
I distinctly remember my mum and grandmother doing that whenever ASda came up in conversation. All those little supermarket jingles and sayings were really effective, I don't really understand why they don't do them anymore. I doubt you can read the word "netto" without immediately thinking "scandinavian for value", and they're long gone.
Do Tesco even say "every little helps" anymore? Broken britain.
|>>|| No. 62315
I think [washing machines live longer with] Calgon is the only memorable jingle still going, possibly also chicken tonight but I doubt they've even done an advert in the past 15 years.
|>>|| No. 62316
I went on YouTube to see if I could find a compilation of women slapping their arses to 'that's Asda price' and found this instead. The theme song has me sold.
|>>|| No. 62317
That's fucking clever, good on him.
Though, to be honest, I've realised you can jut literally walk out of ASDA without paying, they don't give a shit. I buy my razors from there and they have the security tag on them, and since I use self checkout, it never gets removed. So I routinely wander out of the shop with alarms blaring because I can't be arsed to find anyone, and nobody's chased after me yet.
I'm pretty sure you could just fill up a trolley and leave.

What is it with retailers making these minimalist websites without mouseover effects on links? For fucks sake, the page is 90% white and you expect me to easily track my cursor?
|>>|| No. 62321
It's the sort of thing you can only really do if you're retired or unemployed and have too much time on your hands. Most other people wouldn't be prepared to prowl around an Asda carpark on windy days 'wombling' for receipts.
|>>|| No. 62322
Or if you know how to code a handy little script that generates a bunch of receipt numbers, sends them through the website and saves all the ones worth £5 and up, because there's no verification process and no "I'm not a bot" widget.
Oh and you'd need a time machine because they've stopped doing this.

Lots of people yearn for a time that never really existed.
Daily Mail readers long for the days when there was an actual sense of community and people talked to their neighbours. Kids played outside. You could say what you want without repercussion and there'd barely be any brown faces; the ones you did see you could affectionately call names like 'chalkie'.
Guardian readers long for the days when you could buy a house with a week's wages and there were no unscrupulous employers whatsoever because all the power was with the employees.

I dunno m7, I was just pining for a time when Asda gave out vouchers on their website for when things were cheaper somewhere else.
|>>|| No. 62329
And the Guardian one was pretty true, other than the weeks wages bit. My Grandad got a mortgage on a house now worth 1.3 million because he walked into the bank, told them what his job was, and they gave him a list of houses he could afford and he picked one.

I can't work out who the target market is for this but I'm proper craving some percy pigs now.
|>>|| No. 63180
It's because the German manufacturer of Percy pigs has decided to go fully gelatine free. This is undoubtedly evidence of the Shamanismification of Europe and the consequence of mama Merkel letting in billions of 'refugees'.
|>>|| No. 63181
The food developer (and cynic) in me has to assume this means it's now more expensive to use gelatine than a vegan substitute, probably a corn based thickener or perhaps agar agar (I notice none of the furious articles mention what the veggie version actually uses).
Also, anyone saying the flavour is different is talking out of their arse. Pork gelatine is flavourless and so is just about any alternative I can think of. The texture will have changed, certainly, but not the taste.
I also think it's hilarious that this was the FRONT PAGE HEADLINE of the Mail yesterday. And I could fucking picture Piers Morgan glumly holding a bag of them before I even fucking clicked on the link in >>63177.

I'm surprised you can't get vegetarian pork pies yet. Quorn scotch eggs are the only processed veggie food that actually taste similar to the real thing, although you can make your own kind of passable ones if you wrap sosmix around a boiled egg and cover it in breadcrumbs.
|>>|| No. 63190
There's a certain firm toothsomeness in a pork pie that I'm not convinced you could replicate with a vegan solution.
