Tesco branded irresponsible over price of chocolate

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2088752/Tesco-labelled-totally...

apologies for ie being a daily wail story but what do you think considering a lot of supermarkets have done this and you can get the same offer is Poundland or similar

just becuase they have dropped the price does not mean you have to buy it let alone eat it the choice is up to you

I have no problem with Tesco doing this.  You don't have to buy it, or eat it.  And it looks as though they are getting a lot of publicity out of it too!

Ridiculous "news" story!

All supermarkets sell cheap chocolate, you dont have to buy it or eat it.

Nothing wrong with eating chocolate in moderation.  Would be nice to see fruit similarly low priced, but if someone's set on eating chocolate rather than fruit, it's not going to make a difference, they'll ignore the low priced fruit and buy the higher priced chocolate.

I will admit that I do tend to buy it when it's cheap, the other night in Morries they were selling off the Aero xmas trees and the Qualiy Street purple bars for 20p each, now i'd never buy them full price (60p for a couple of mouthfulls?..no thanks!)  but to stash in the cupboard at that price for when the fancy takes me, every time.

Would this be the right place to mention that Asda are selling off their christmas stock at rediculous prices? They had build your own trees (biscuits, icing and deccies) for 2p a box?
