Greta doesn't want you to eat crisps anyway.

Do you mean the number of packs of crisps or the number of individual crisps? Or both?

27 fecking grams in a pack. That’s not even 1/3 of a potato ffs.

The worlds gone to shit. You want to treat yourself and you get midget sized crisps, crap tasting fizzy drinks and midget sized chocolate bars which are disposed of in two bites. All because some fat cunts can’t control themselves. And the fuckers keep getting more fat whilst we’re left with this shit.
How about not having a sig at all?

Minimum prices on booze in Scotland for the same reason! :(

I did have a lovely large grab bag of giant hula hoops, sweet chilli flavour earlier, mmmmmmmmmmm

Yep, everyone has to suffer by paying more for sugary things while portion sizes are shrinking just because some thickos cant control what they eat.

Yet at the same time adverts are full of fat people showing how happy they are with their bodies and that we should accept everyone for who they are not what they are.

Maybe if it was ok to point out that being morbidly obese and troughing a family pack of double deckers isn't part of a balanced diet we wouldn't have to have sugar taxes and fun size chocolate bars.

I appear to have wandered into PH :lol:.

You know you can still get the bigger sizes right? You just have to pay a bit more.

You’ve got to love that capitalism.

I can buy lots of proper sized single bags, but then I'm losing the economies of scale.

McCoys single bag: 47.5g, £0.85 = 55.8 grams per pound
McCoys multi-pack bag: 6× 25g, £1.25 = 120 grams per pound

What I want is six proper sized bags for the same price per gram as I can get the pathetic multi pack bags for.
Of course I could just eat two multi pack bags instead of one single bag, but that would annoy Greta even more.

TBH I can't remember the last time I bought a multipack of crisps, I usually just buy a sharing bag and don't share.

Ready Salted Mackies for dinner last night :lol:.

Have an apple instead.

Cut into quarters, remove seeds and crap. Cut each quarter into 3 long ways, hold together while doing it then cut in half again across.
You will now have 24 bits of apple which is far more snacky than 7 crisps.

Think of the other users of the NHS who need it more than fatties :lol:

This - we realised years ago that a portion from a Sharing pack, dished out in a bowl is a far cheaper option for the nipper than a single from a 6 bag Muilti-Pack for his occasional Crisp Eating...

Battenberg is his vice... he'd eat a whole one in a sitting if we let him... :lol:

I can't imagine being shit enough to buy crisps in a multi-pack. Crisps aren't difficult so don't suck at them.

Surely it should be possible to just pick up a big bag containing several normal size bags?

If I want some cans of coke I'll go by a pack of ten, they're all the same 330ml as if I was buying one on its own, but in a handy package and also cheaper because I'm buying more at the same time.
