The great British Jaffa Cake bait and switch
February 2, 2018 10:40 AM Subscribe
Scandal haunts the supermarket aisles of Britannia. Previously phallically packaged, Jaffa Cakes (MetaPreviously), part of the national diet (posh variations), a present for teachers or reward after donating blood, are being (again) sold in boxes of 100 for only £3.50 (or 3.5p, less than 5 US cents, per cake). Many of the newly repackaged cakes have gone, some people are well stocked up, but the sole chain outlet oft runs out, leaving shoppers to buy smaller boxes... of only ten to a pack (previously twelve). This is part of a wider trend, though Jaffa Cakes (size issue) are better on some metrics because it's complicated. Though healthy, please eat slowly and decently; alternatives (raspberry, cake, donut, light snack, Polish, Halloween, ice cream) exist, and the future.
