Food industry ready to cut calories all over the place

The government, which lest we forget is full of grade one WEIRDOS like Philip Hammond and Theresa May, is not satisfied with weakening our booze and then charging us more for it – now the wretched bastards are tampering with our food as well.

A whopping 17 food and drink companies have pledged to cut calories in their delicious goods as part of the war on obesity or something. Additionally, Cadbury’s have turned themselves into a laughing stock by agreeing to add resealable packaging on many of their chocolate bars – as if THAT’S going to stop us.

Under the new scheme, every chocolate bar made by Mars will have a cap of 250 calories, while the UK arm of Coca Cola says it will introduce a 30% reduction in some of its soft drinks by 2014. Seriously, what is going to be the point of living?

Sneering tossprick health boss Andrew Lansley reckons that three quarters of the food retail sector will be signing up to his joyless scheme. We demand to know the names of the companies that are giving it a swerve so that we can pledge our allegiance to their wares.

    I can assure you that the companies will not just make the cans of pop and chocolate bars smaller and charge the same prices.

    thats a good idea, having re-sealable stickiness on choccie packets :) I always eat some then put them down and one time i had sellotape on the packet of sweets, for some reason the next moment my sweet packet was on the floor, sellotape stuck to my shoe, and i dragged sweets all across my bedroom floor!. There where white chocolate button with hundreds and thousands on the top, i am still finding the sprinkles in my thick pile carpet now even after many many hoovers!.

    Politicians should stick to fucking up the country and lining their own pockets.
  • Boris

    If there is a war on obesity, why can't the army just shoot fat people instead?
