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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
