Before panic sets in, the change is just for the UK market to adjust for the lower valuation of the Pound, keep price the same, hrink the bar rather than raise the price.

About the only thing to glean from that is obviously someone thinks the Pound will be slow to rebound, if it does.

I have seen the pictures of the new bar -- it is an abomination! It looks like they took out every other triangle from the bar.

It is equivalent to around an 11% price increase.

Must have been easier to retool the chocolate than the boxes and wrapping, which remain the same size.
