Is food getting smaller, or are we getting bigger??

I just took this from a post on the mini milks, where someone said that mini milks arent small, we're all just bigger...

I thought this too, but then I thought about wagon wheels and curly wurlies...they have definately got smaller. I remember Curly Wurlies being the length of a long school ruler or just a little bit shorter.. so whats that? 20-25cm? Now they're tiny and taste rubbish.

Wagon wheels are definately smaller and always tasted rubbish, but whatever.

Anyone know any other childhood sweets/food thats changed?

    Yes!! You get about 8 Discos in a pack now...if you're lucky!! You have to practically go searching for them when you open the packet....:eek2:

    But still worth it for the delicious salt 'n' vinegariness......:yum:

    Cadbury's buttons have most definitely shrunk.

    Space Raiders bags have shrunk remarkably, but i suppose they're justified; that 10p has been battling with inflation all my life.

    I had a big mac a while ago. I hadn't had one in years... it wasn't very big at all.

    yeah space raiders have a stupid amount in the packet.

    I have to get about 5 bags to get a fix now :grump:

    Although they do have 20p packs now :yippe:
