    Disappointing

    After donkeys years, bought a packet of Liquorice Allsorts, and with much anticipation opened the bag.
    Taste seems to be the same, but as my dearest wife was quick to point out, size was an issue, leaving a feeling of being underwhelmed. Biggest ruddy let down, was the absence of the edible " Bertie Bassett " figure, no where to be seen.
    Has anyone else had similar issues, with products from years gone by?

    I also feel a bit let down with recent events to be honest..let me explain.

    Lost our last dog a few years ago and decided to get another a few weeks ago..we bought him from a blacksmith and as soon as we got him home he made a bolt for the door......

    Last bag I had did have a couple of Bertie's in it, the licorice is not quite the same though - how long have you been married it seems to have taken your wife a while to realise size is an issue!

    Just about all lolly sizes have shrunk in recent years from my visits to the shops. Even worse, the packet sizes remain the same...and they just half fill them...to give the impression nothing has changed! 🙄
