No more sweets at the Tesco counter
Ah, do you remember last week, when you used to be able to pester your mum at the till at Tesco to buy you two Milky Ways and a bag of Haribo Tangfastics?
Well, you'll have to make do with some chewing gum and magazines, because Tesco have decided to remove sweets and sugary treats from the counter at their Tesco Express and Tesco Metro stores.
It follows a poll of Tesco customers which showed that two thirds of them wanted rid of the sugary snacks, and could do without feral kids biting their arms and screaming ‘I WANT RANDOMS!’ while they were putting their items in the bagging area.
Killjoy Tesco boss Phillip Clarke said:
"We all know how easy it is to be tempted by sugary snacks at the checkout, and we want to help our customers lead healthier lives. We've already removed billions of calories from our soft drinks, sandwiches and ready meal ranges by changing the recipes to reduce their sugar, salt and fat content. And we will continue to look for opportunities to take out more."
WHATEVER. You’re just copying Lidl, as usual - who did the same thing in January.
