    Curly Wurly's now have to obey a specific EU guideline regarding the ratio of Curly to Wurly, which whilst creating a more uniform confectionary, does result in a small gross average size.

    Ok, so i'm making this crap up, but what if i wasn't.

    Re: Whats with Kinder Eggs these days?!?

    I used to share an office with a lad who was addicted to Kinders - and got me hooked as well - we used to get trays of 2 dozen each lunchtime and make up the toys and give the (frankly rather nasty) chocolate away. By the time I left the job we had several large carrier bags of lpastic toys to take away. On getting home my missus took me to task about it - and I did actually feel pretty silly at wasting all that money on silly plastic toys...

    Ah no - I was a Systems Manager for a big legal firm in those days - and the lawyers didn't want to play...unless they could charge for it in 6 minute chunks...

    Re: Whats with Kinder Eggs these days?!?

    Back in the day (80's) when Kinder Eggs cost more than my weekly (even monthly) pocket money... You used to get some really decent toys! I remember my fav was a motorbike that had a little motor that I'd get every so often. But 50p in the 80's was a very expensive Kinder Egg. Nowadays you get some stupid molded cartoon character that no one has ever heard of. It's only worth it for the unique chocolate.

    Those were the days! Look at me, getting nostalgic at 24!
