Can we broaden this out to other snack-related foodstuffs?

Because, if so, I have a LOT to get off my chest LOL

Right, deep breath...

Batchelor's Savoury Rice - my mum used to make a Boxing Day salad with this every year. It was moist, tasty, probably packed full of naughty stuff & we all loved it. Had it a year or so back - filthy stuff. Dry, like bits of cardboard, bland disgusting...and now called Super Rice. I mean what's super about making something taste foul?

Cadbury's Cream Egg - and pretty much anything made by Cadbury's after "the takeover". Horribly sweet, half the size, nasty aftertaste.

Findus Crispy Pancakes - I mean, I haven't one for yonks, but the last time I did - WTF? They used to be a Friday night staple in our house when I was a kid. Last time they were like baby food wrapped in a nappy.

Pringles BBQ flavour - beefy, satisfying, lovely things. Now sweet orange monstrosities.

Also whatever happened to Potato Puffs with the little smiley face on the packet? 10p at the school tuckshop when I were t'lad. Beef or salt & vinegar. Left your fingers coated in additive goodness. Not seen them in years.

Or Cheese Moments...

I'll stop there.

Most snack foods are either too sweet or too salty.

Findus Crispy Pancakes used to be amazing, proper filled with actual delicious solid beef filling.
That was definitely my memory anyway.  Now it's a dribble of watery gruel and a few micrograins of who knows what.

Holland’s meat and potato pies. Now called “potato and meat” so they can get away with hardly having any actual meat in them. Just brown slop with the odd bit of gristle. Sick

They've also just ruined Birds-Eye Chicken Chargrills with a 'new improved recipe' that seems to have consisted of now using the lowest quality chicken allowable by law and then coating them with what can only be described as a cum-like substance.

What takeover?  I thought Americans were the only ones who got screwed over by Cadbury when the US branch was spun off and sold to a US company and that company changed all the recipes supposedly to "fit American tastes".

Tesco has a deal on a family bag of Monster Munch, nearly picked them up yesterday, glad I didn't now!

I agree with the bachelor's super rice, no matter how much water you put in them, they're still hard as nails.

Is all of this just since Brexit or did it start before?

Started before.

Brexit means it all costs 30% more than it did last year.

Since childhood, I’ve preferred chocolate to other sweet or salty snacks.  In terms of purity standards, Belgian and Swiss > other EU > UK and Canada > US.  (The Japanese brand Royce also makes very good  chocolate.)

Mass market US chocolate bars like Hershey’s have been inedible for 20+ years now, and yet they are still  trending downwards, as corporate food chemists and engineers keep finding ways to cut the costs of ingredients by fractions of pennies.  ‘Regular’ ice cream products have also very noticeably been degraded over the years.  You have to pay the  premium ice cream price to get something that’s still ice cream.

Re: salty snack food.  I used to get Mr Porky pork crackle from Waitrose.  It’s a heart attack in a bag, and I hope they haven’t changed.

The thing about American snacks, ice cream, and things like that is that the vast majority of Americans won't pay the price they would need to pay for what the rest of the world has access to in these categories. I could, proverbially, write a book about everything Americans complain about the price of anymore and Americans pay some of, if not the, the lowest prices for things in the world and they still think it's too much or they don't know they don't pay much. Bleh! American companies wouldn't be able to get away with cheapening things if so many American consumers didn't constantly gripe about having to pay what the rest of the civilized world pays by default.

It's my impression that Green & Black's organic chocolate (British) is good quality.  No?

It has long been my belief that the processed food industry gets rich making us sick and then the pharmaceutical companies get rich selling us their pills.  If nobody got sick anymore then we'd have an economic disaster.
