Can I suggest that any mention of how big they used to be or how whatever price is or isn't a bargain be left out of this thread.

We all know how big they used to be any how much they all used to cost in fairness.

Anyone else agree?

I like the new plastic tubs as the 'shrinking' cadbury's roses was taking up a ridiculously small amount of the big tin as they reduced the volume in them year after year. They started off around 1.5kg's and are now just half that.

With the cutting of costs with the new packaging I'd imagine we will see them down to circa €4 by some retailers for Christmas. I bet we will even see a €3.99!

So long as everybody remembers too that the Roses aren't as nice as they used to be and don't give me any. Quality Street FTW.

Yes. Sort it out Cadburys.

Get the lovely Velvet Caramel one back in the green wrapper - the coffee one is an imposter!
