Alright so we had some nice weather here in the UK recently (for a change), and I decided to have a cheat day by buying some Cornetto ice creams. Well I was flabbergasted when I saw the size of them let me tell you!
I heard that they used to same excuse that Cadbury used with their Creme Eggs – “we as consumers were getting bigger (we were now grown up) and the product only appeared smaller when it wasn’t”. Bullsh*t!
I’ve got proof here. In the first picture is an advert from 1982 which depicts some guy trying to snatch the ice cream from the lady. Now here is just one screenshot of the poor quality video, and the full video.
Next we see the size of Cornettos nowadays and even though it’s being held by men, the size difference is quite obvious.
Ridiculous isn’t it?
