Yorkies

Are Yorkies basically Nestle's answer to the Dairy Milk?

No that's not the reason at all.

Exactly what Toblerone has done as well. More gap, less chocolate. Similar in that you'd near break your jaw trying to chow down on it. Both gone to ****e these days.

Like everything its about a 3rd the size of the original. I used to get that biscuit and raisin one and you'd be full after it.

The biscuit and raisin ones are grand. The blue ones are Nestle's usual ****e chocolate.

People will only spend a certain amount for a bar. With costs going up the only way to maintain the price is to reduce the size of the product.

The only bar left that's gives you a half decent satisfactory chew is a double decker.
And even the duo one is needed for that.

Star bar is nice but too small.

I'm familiar with "shrinkflation" but it's not always to do with increasing costs in producing the products. It can also be a company simply opting to increase their profit margin.

Sure prices of ingredients in certain products fluctuate all the time but savings are rarely ever passed onto the consumer. Be it through increasing the size of the product again to its former size, or reducing the price. Prices only go upwards.
