    You don't fly a lot? Can't leave an airport without Toblerone.

    Wolfgang made me do it. (See 'Last Word Sentences' thread).

    Last summer I was at an airport and asked my friend “what would ever possess anyone to buy such a gigantic bar of that horrible stuff as a gift after a holiday? Maybe buy it for someone you didn’t like that much?”

    Yep, agreed. We fly a lot. Sometimes I just fancy a small bag of sweets to take to the aircraft. Sometimes not possible: in a lot of airports you either buy gargantuan, pillow-sized bags of m&m's, Haribo, mento's (all horrid) or nothing. I choose nothing.

    And they're always more expensive at the airport, duty free at airports is the biggest con going.

    We used to be able to buy lots of duty free goods at airports but now certain products like perfume are more expensive than they are in a Boots store. The store assistants then have the cheek to ask for our boarding passes so that they can claim the tax back for the store.

    Are the Toblerone mountains more widely spaced due to Brexit?😛

    This has long been a corner - stone of my objection to 'Brexit.' What next; eleven eggs to the dozen? Cars with three wheels? It's only a matter of time....I say hang democracy, let the people eat chocolate.
