Best price, but there's a catch.
on 9 July 2011
I've not seen a better price than this, so i bought a box and give the company 4 stars for the price. But I give 1* to Bassett/Kraft for it appears they've shaved a good bit off the lenghth of the stick and therefore made what should be a hundred sticks in reality a good few less. I've bought Bassetts hard, liquorice sticks since the 60's and I know how long they should be by sight, if not by measurement, and these sticks look to be well short. Shame on Kraft, but then what can you expect from a company that welshed on the deal to keep Cadbury's jobs in the UK. No morals.
I will savour every last one of these shortened, hard sticks, because they'll be the last I buy. The sweet world has gone bitter, the sweet world has gone corporate.
